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.
Why would God put a tree in the center of a garden and then tell Adam and Even not to touch it? Listen as Fr. Chris speaks with Dr. Justin Jackson, Associate Professor of English at Hillsdale College, and the main teacher and organizer of the St Macrina Orthodox Institute in Detroit. With this archived classic from 2008, we start the New Year at the very beginning, Creation and Original Sin. Understanding sin might be the help you need to keep your New Year’s resolution. Listen and let us know what you think.
