Encountering Orthodox Christianity for the First Time

There’s a lot to like in this short YouTube video.

It’s produced by SoulPancake, a company founded by actor Rainn Wilson (who plays Dwight on the hit US version of “The Office”). SoulPancake’s purpose is to use media to help people from all walks of life discuss and question what it means to be human—to wrestle with the spiritual, philosophical, and creative journey that is life.

In this episode, Zach, a young man with some Greek ancestry, visits a Greek Orthodox Church for the very first time — and is surprised and inspired by what he finds.

Have you or someone you introduced to Orthodoxy ever had a similar experience?

P.S. Special props to St. Sophia Cathedral for participating in the series, and for cultivating an obviously effective outreach to young people in the Los Angeles area.
