The Children’s Word: Like Father, Like Son

The Children’s Word: Like Father, Like Son


Welcome to The Children’s Word, a weekly ministry of the Orthodox Christian Network brought to you by Presvytera Alexandra Houck!

This week, Presvytera Alexandra talks about parents and kids. Do you do what your parents ask you to do? Always? Are there ever times when you don’t want to? Probably! Find out whether it was the same for Jesus and His Father. You can also do a maze and an icon activity, and learn the story of Saint Bede.

Jason Houck, is a priest at St. Mary's Greek Orthodox Church in Minneapolis, MN. Presvytera Alexandra and Fr. Jason have five small children: Lydia, Paul, Silas, Philip, and Sarah. Presvytera Alexandra grew up attending Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Asheville, North Carolina with her nine siblings.
