How do we balance preserving the ethnic heritage of our churches with really providing a nurturing Christian community for the broader society and younger generations? Fr. Anthony Messeh of St. Timothy and St. Athanasius Church in Arlington, VA, www.stsachurch.org, is on the show this week to talk about this question. Fr. Anthony holds a contemporary service each week, and his parish boasts an enormous array of ministries for every demographic.
