Shaped by a life of service to Christ’s Church, Fr. Christopher has dedicated himself to using all the tools God has placed at his disposal to spread the light of Orthodoxy across America. As Founding Father and host of the Orthodox Christian Network (OCN) and the “Come Receive The Light” national Orthodox Christian radio program, he shepherds a dynamic and rapidly expanding ministry bringing joy, hope, and salvation in Jesus Christ to millions of listeners on Internet and land-based radio around the world in more than 130 countries. Fr. Christopher is the former President of Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology and Parish Priest of Saint Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Dr. Stephen Muse is back on the show to continue the conversation about forgiveness that we started this past December. He speaks with Fr. Chris today about the role of acceptance in forgiveness. Stephen is a pastoral counselor and marriage and family therapist who works with combat veterans and their spouses, persons suffering from abuse, and also with clergy and their families.
