Let's Talk: The Orthodox Appeal to “Nones” and “Dones”

Join myOCN Interactive Virtual Community this Thursday, 6/10 at 7:00 pm EST. Register Now.

Guest host, Hank Hanegraaff will be joined by special guest Terry Mattingly where they will be discussing the Orthodox Appeal to “Nones” and “Dones.”  As was communicated on last week’s OCN Let’s Talk, the Mother Church’s overall numbers are shrinking. And in addition to this internal crisis, the external host culture has turned antagonistic, even hostile, toward “the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.”  As Fr. Chris Metropulos has emphasized again and again, the solution entails two major components—one external; the other internal.

    Terry Mattingly (tmatt.net) 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. He was the founder of the Washington Journalism Center at the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, which in 2015 was rebooted at The King's College. Mattingly’s father was a pastor and his mother a language arts teacher. Thus, it’s no surprise that Mattingly is a journalist and teacher who focuses on religion and that he continues to study both writing and religion. He double-majored in journalism and history at Baylor University and then earned an M.A. at Baylor in Church-State Studies and an M.S. in communications at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. He has worked as a reporter and religion columnist at the Rocky Mountain News in Denver and the Charlotte Observer and the Charlotte News. In 1991, Mattingly began teaching at Denver Seminary. While teaching, he has continued to write the weekly “On Religion” column for the features department of the Scripps Howard News Service in Washington, D.C., which is sent to about 350 newspapers in North America. He is the founder and editor of the GetReligion website that critiques the mainstream media’s coverage of religion news. In addition to his classroom duties, Mattingly has lectured at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass., the Torreys Honors Program at Biola University, the School of Journalism at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, Baylor University in Waco, Texas, and in other settings across the nation. Mattingly is a prodigal Texan who has never met a mountain that he didn’t love. He is a music fanatic whose interests range from Celtic acoustic guitar to Russian chant. His wife, Debra Bridges Mattingly, is a public librarian and they have two grown children, Sarah Jeanne Wagner, and Frye Lewis Mattingly. The Mattinglys are members of St. Anne's Orthodox Church in Oak Ridge, Tenn.
