Resource on Marriage and Venture Scouting

Resource on Marriage and Venture Scouting


How well do you understand the Orthodox expression of marriage? Is it a promise? Is it a sacrament? Glory and Honor, Orthodox Christian Resource on Marriage, is a recently published collection of various Orthodox authors, professors, and speakers who touch upon every aspect of marriage. Listen as Fr. Chris speaks with Dr. David Ford on this book and on marriage through the Orthodox lens.glory-honor

Glory and Honor, Orthodox Christian Resource on Marriage, is available on the OCN AMAZON web store and would make a great study for a book club or an engagement/ wedding gift.

But first, we have Mr. Harald Hagen in a conversation with our guest host, Fr. Gregory Joyce. Listen as they discuss Venture Scouting and the benefits a scouting program can have on a parish youth group. Harald is a Venturing Advisor for Alabama and Georgia and he is on the Southern Region Board for the Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting.

You can visit, Venture Scouting, and Eastern Orthodox Committee on Scouting, or email Harald at, for more information.
