Orthodoxy in Romania


On Special Moments in Orthodox, Dr. Keith Massey presents a video podcast report from Romania. Many Americans hear “Romania” and immediately think of Dracula. In fact, you’ll learn that Romania is a thriving Orthodox country. It suffered under Communist oppression for many years, but the Church survived and now is blossoming.
