Inspired by the documentary, PISTEVO, the Orthodox Christian Network will be featuring iconography and the Saints of the Orthodox Church. Iconography, the centuries-old tradition of depicting faith through images, was the primary means of teaching Christianity until written records were formally canonized as the Holy Scriptures. Please join us in raising awareness of iconography as a window into heaven & finding and fostering one’s faith.

Prayer Corners Around the World


A common practice for Orthodox Christians is having a prayer corner in one’s home. A prayer corner can be as little as a shelf with a few icons to as large as an entire room dedicated to the icons of our saints. These corners include icons, incense burners, candles, etc. The purpose is to give you a place for prayer,  a quiet place for you and your family to foster your faith.

We invite you to share your prayer corners with us. Please post to the Orthodox Christians Network’s Facebook page or email us at InspiredByPistevo@myocn.net. We will be sharing these photography with our viewers across the world. Sharing the beauty of our Orthodox faith.

INSPIRED BY PISTEVO

Inspired by the documentary, PISTEVO & The Greek Orthodox Church of Our Saviour in Rye, New York, the Orthodox Christian Network is embarking on a major initiative to feature iconography and the Saints of the Orthodox Church over the next several months and years to come.  Please watch  PISTEVO – “I Believe”, and join us in raising awareness of iconography as a window to finding and fostering one’s faith.

ABOUT ICONOGRAPHY

Iconography, the centuries-old tradition of depicting faith through images, was the primary means of teaching Christianity until written records were formally canonized as the Holy Scriptures. Yet even today, centuries later, iconography remains a spiritually powerful part of Orthodox Christian theology.  For many, the images enhance one’s ability to go deeper into the exploration and appreciation of their faith.

The independent documentary depicts a community coming together to complete the centuries-old mission of iconography led by Father Elias Villis at the Greek Orthodox Church of our Saviour in Rye, NY.

The epic film, PISTEVO, directed by  Director, Mark Brodie, and written and produced by Taryn Grimes Herbert,  expresses “why we honor the traditions of our theology and share our spiritual experience with the Orthodox world.”
