When Christ is the Center

When Christ is the Center


Does religion need to be separated from politics for people to be free?  As we close this month’s theme of Freedom, we’ve invited Haralambos Ventis, Professor of Theology at the Hellenic Open University of Patras and part-time translator in Athens, Greece, to speak with Fr. Chris Metropulos on the separation of church and state.  Listen and see if you agree that Orthodoxy has the best answer to this question.

And keep listening as Fr. Chris talks with Steven Christoforou, the new Director of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese Youth and Young Adult Ministries, or Y2AM. Find out why everything doesn’t have to be religious, but Christ needs to be the center of everything we do.  Steven offers clear examples of how his office is planning to accomplish this.  If you would like to reach Steven and the Y2AM office, go to:
