What it Means to be a Christian?

In our final conversation of the mini series on what it means to be a Christian, Fr. Chris Metropulos talks with His Excellency Kallistos Ware, an English bishop within the Eastern Orthodox Church under the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople and a renowned theologian of the Eastern Orthodox Church. His excellency addresses questions raised by our listeners such as, what is the purpose of life? What is heaven and hell? And more specific questions related to homosexuality, pre-marital sex and abortion. His excellency gives us clear answers based on scripture and tradition of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Listen Now.

If you are a parish member, priest or a seminarian interested in engaging your parishes the upcoming conversation is just for you. Fr. Chris raises questions on the meaning and value of Stewardship. with Rev. Theodore Petrides. We hear some very encouraging news from Fr. Theodore who talks of parishes on fire for Christ and what stewardship really means. As part of an on-going series on stewardship, OCN is pleased to share excerpts from the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America Stewardship Resources Handbook for 2017.  This series hopes to assist your parish Stewardship team in getting started and planning a full year of Stewardship Ministry. The handbook contains guidelines for preparation of a parish Stewardship Program, updated letters, a sample commitment card and new member card, various campaign formats and ideas for parish stewardship ministry.
