VIDEO: An Introduction to the Orthodox Worship Space


Orthodoxy looks different than Western Christianity. Literally. The degree to which it looks different depends on the Western Christian tradition it is compared to. For most Protestants, the Orthodox Church is entirely foreign. “Why all the pictures?” they might ask as they uncertainly navigate around the worship space—if they venture to enter an Orthodox Church in the first place. With such people in mind, Frederica Matthewes-Green recently came out with the first in a series of videos about the Orthodox Church.

Watch the video above, where Frederica talks about the basics of the Orthodox worship space,  and let us know what you think! If you think it will be helpful for someone you may know, share it with them and let us know their response!

The above video is part 5 in an ongoing series from Theoria entitled, Welcome to the Orthodox Church
