Peace, Faith, and War

Why is peace so important to us, as human beings? The world around us is full of war, disaster, hatred, and struggle. Our own inner world can be scarred by sadness and anxiety. Yet no matter how hard it is to find, we keep seeking peace. Why? And where can we find it?

Jesus stood out among His contemporaries in part because of His teachings about peace, which were unusual in a world where military and physical power were often the only guarantees of safety. Listen in as Fr. Hildo Bos, co-editor of For the Peace from Above, shares what early Christians wrote about peace, faith, and war. Fr. Hildo is a priest at the St. Nicholas of Myra Russian Orthodox Church in Amsterdam.

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
