As we kick-off the Advent season, forty days before Christmas, we are sharing an archived program with Terry Mattingly. Terry writes the nationally syndicated “On Religion” column for the Universal Uclick Syndicate and is Senior Fellow for Media and Religion at The King’s College in New York City. Listen as he and Fr. Chris Metropulos, Founding Father of OCN and President of Hellenic College Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, discuss family, faith and the proper time to celebrate Christmas.
But first, we welcome Dr. David Ford who is Professor of Church History at St. Tikhon’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in South Canaan, Pennsylvania. He and his wife, Mary, are the authors of Marriage As a Path to Holiness: Lives of Married Saints. This month he shares the life story of Saints Justinian and Theodora.
