Teens and Technology

Sponsored By: Orthodox Christian Counseling Institute (OCCI)

Have your children been introduced to the addictive qualities of modern technology?  We’ve invited Dr. Ary Christofidis, the Founder and Director of the Orthodox Christian Counseling Institute (OCCI), to speak with our guest host, Emmy Louvaris, on how our children are affected by modern technology, beyond stifling their social skills and grammar.  Most parents aren’t doing enough.  This interview will inspire you to self-assess if you are doing enough to protect your children.

But first, Fr. Chris has a conversation with Dr. Andrew Louth on his book, Greek East and Latin West: The Church AD 681-1071 (The Church in History.) Although it’s impossible to return to the intimate relationship the churches had over a thousand years ago, this book offers an insight to the church in the 11th century.

Also mentioned in the program: a new movie/DVD “Mysteries of the Jesus Prayer.
