Listen Now.Love. This gift of God is expressed in joy, patience, service… But our modern society has also distorted it, devalued it to a feeling for objects or to be expressed inappropriately towards people. Listen as Fr. Stavros Akrotirianakis, of St. John Greek Orthodox Church in Tampa, FL, speaks with Bryce Buffenbarger as a student at Hellenic College Holy Cross on love and healthy ways for teens to express and understand their feelings towards one another. They touch on the topics of dating, intimacy, and sexual relationships. This is a great interview for teens and adults to hear. Remember to Always Have Faith in What you Listen to with the Anchor streaming Orthodox Christian Radio Station of OCN.
