In Love with Excess

As we enter the Christmas season, Dr. Randa Anderson, a member of the Orthodox Christian Counseling Institute in Chicago, talks with Fr. Chris about our infatuation with excess. With insight into our desire to indulge, they also discuss the benefits of prayer, fasting and almsgiving towards our preparation for Christ’s birth. This is sure to inspire your Advent experience and reveal the true meaning of Christmas. You can find the books Dr. Anderson mentions here:

Seven: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker

On Living Simply by St. John Chrysostom

And stay tuned as Fr. Chris speaks with Fr. Paul Patitsas who is currently serving in Auckland, New Zealand. Fr. Paul reflects on the challenges of serving in a post-Christian society and the benefits of a media-based ministry like OCN. He also expresses his love for missions and how Archbishop Amphilochios is reaching the native Fijians with the love of Christ and Orthodoxy.
