The Family Unit in the Early Church

Without the imminent return of our Lord, could it be our fire has gone out?  Now that we have less to lose, have we become lukewarm?  The Very Rev. Dr. Harry Pappas, Associate Professor of Scripture at St. Vladimir’s Seminary and priest of Archangels Greek Orthodox Church in Stamford, CT, speaks with Fr. Chris on the family unit in the early church.  The cultural, social, and political aspects of life in the first centuries of Christianity were very different from those in our modern world, but there are still many things we can learn from the early Christians.  Listen as these two priests share pastoral experiences from the past 30 years of ministry and compare them with life in the first three centuries.
