Children love the saints and reading about the saints in books by Potamitis Publishing. Dionysios Potamitis is the owner of Potamitis Publishing, a family publishing house that is dedicated to dogmatically correct, beautifully illustrated and intriguing books for Orthodox Children around the Globe. But he isn’t a businessman, he is a missionary. Listen as Bryce and Dionysios talk about his books, living in Greece and serving the church. You can find his books on the Potamitis Publishing Website or at your parish bookstore. He can be reached by phone at U.S. (410)734-2771. With prayer and a talent for translations, he dreams of publishing books in every language in order to share God’s story and the lives of the saints.
First, we have an archived interview with Rod Dreher, a popular columnist on The American Conservative and National Review. Rod and Fr. Chris discuss a book, Tinsel: A Search for America’s Christmas Present, and the need to slow down and allow Christmas to be. We have established a bad habit of over-doing Christmas with consumption. Click on the audio file link at the bottom to hear the interviews with Rod Dreher and Dionysios Potamitis.
