Be the Best You

Be the Best You


“I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 is quote ​beloved by many people​. Listen as Fr. Chris and Fr. Stavros Akrotirianakis, of St. John Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa,​ FL,​ talk about the value of positive thinking ​in moving us toward happiness or​,​ better yet, fulfillment. We each possess the power to change our perception of any situation​,​ and Fr. Stavros offers personal insight and inspiration to be the best “You” possible.

But first, in loving memory of Fr. William Chiganos, who recently fell asleep in the Lord, we have an excerpt from a sermon Fr. William gave in 2009 on the Rich Young Ruler’s question to Christ regarding salvation. It wasn’t the answer the young man was expecting, but it is still true today. For the full sermon​,​ go to “Orthodoxy Explained: It’s About Personal Relationships​.​”
