Getting Past Religion
June 17, 2011 Length: 14:24
Fr. Stephen suggests that the heart of our faith and our relationship with God can be found more quickly in such things as music and beauty. We often seek to substitute language about religious doctrine in the place of these more primary expressions of our Christian life.
"I wanted to briefly say thank you for the ministry and Christian witness you provide through AFR on a daily basis. The music and podcasts you provide expose so many to Orthodox faith and worship and make available vital educational resources to the faithful. My Orthodox faith and walk with Christ have certainly been strengthened in the last few years through the ministry of AFR, and for that I am grateful."
