Finding Balance in the Contemporary

How do we balance preserving the ethnic heritage of our churches with really providing a nurturing Christian community for the broader society and younger generations? Fr. Anthony Messeh of St. Timothy and St. Athanasius Church in Arlington, VA, www.stsachurch.org, is on the show this week to talk about this question. Fr. Anthony holds a contemporary service each week, and his parish boasts an enormous array of ministries for every demographic.

We’ll also speak with Brigid Strait about the Ortho Gals blog. Orthogals.com is a blog site started by three Orthodox Christian singles who felt the book on dating they wanted to read had not been written yet, and in it’s place they launched a meaningful dialogue with other singles, through this blog, who were searching for answers to many of the same questions. Also, to learn more about the Labor Day weekend event in Atlanta, visit www.regonline.com/cwww2013.
