Sexuality and Self

Fr. Anthony Messah of St. Timothy and St. Athanasius Church in Arlington, VA, begins our month-long look at human sexuality.

Questions include:
* What do we learn from Scripture about our sexuality?
* How do we embrace the gift of our sexuality without struggling against it as a passion?
* Why is it problematic to view sexuality as the biggest part of our personhood; as the primary thing that defines us?
* How does this emphasis on sex as our whole identity affect not only us, but also our relationship with others – including God?
* How does it affect our self-image when we post sexually-explicit images or stories of ourselves on social media?
* How does that affect our self image to be putting such an intimate piece of who we are out there for the world to see?
* How does that behavior affect our intimate relationships – both present and future?

We also speak today with Lea Povozhaev about her new book, When Russia Came to Stay. Listen to the full interview with Lea here.

Greetings in the Lord!

With the support of people like you, the Orthodox Christian Network is making a measurable difference in reaching the younger generations. Here are just a few facts about our ministry’s success:

The Orthodox Christian Network is the largest Orthodox Internet presence in the world—by far! Our programs are shared with 500,000 OCN Facebook fans every day. 74% of them are 35 or younger. 38% are 24 or younger.

Help us take advantage of this tremendous success and expand our ministry over the summer. With one week left, we’ve almost reached our Summer Fundraising Goal! But we need your support TODAY to reach $15,000

Donate to our 10 Cent A Day Campaign and your gift will go toward reaching 10 new people around the world. 100% of your donation goes to mission, with 0% to overhead.

On behalf of all of the Orthodox Christian Network, we thank you for 20 years of support for our beloved ministry.

Rev. Dr. Christopher Metropulos, Orthodox Christian Network Executive Director
