Dimitris Karavasilis was born and grew up in Imvros, Turkey. He attended the Turkish primary school, while at the same time secretly learning the basic Greek language. Forced to emigrate, he settled in Greece. He went on to study both Theology and Greek Literature at the University of Athens, where he also attended post-graduate classes in the field of Comparative Paedagogics. He has been a radio producer at the local ecclesiastical radio station of the Metropolis of Pereus for 23 years. He still teaches religion and ethics at the High School level.
Εμείς οι άφρονες
Είναι φορές που μοιάζουμε τόσο πολύ στους τύπους των ανθρώπων τις παραβολές του Κυρίου που θα έλεγες οτι τις είπε για μας. Ο άφρονας πλούσιος είμαστε ίσως εμείς κάθε φορά που λογαριάζουμε την πρόσκαιρη ζωή μας ως την υπέρτατη αξία για την οποία είμαστε έτοιμοι να κάνουμε τις πιο μεγάλες θυσίες. Μάταια όμως!
We are the fools
There are times in our lives when we are like the people from the parables, as if Jesus was talking about us. How about the times when we consider our temporary life as the ultimate value and we are ready to make the hardest sacrifices for it? We are like the fools of the Gospel. But when we think of our neighbors, we put ourselves in the proper place and are wise.
Come Receive the Light- Greek is a weekly program that strives to enlighten our daily lives with the light of Scripture and wisdom of the Church fathers. The show focuses on themes designed to feature the effect of faith and our participation in the life of the Church. It is a ministry for our Greek speaking listeners.
