OrthoAnalytika (orthodox podcast)

Today is the second of a series of podcasts based on a class we teach here at St. Michael’s, called “Our Faith: Orthodox Christianity at St. Michael’s”. This set of classes is designed to explore Orthodox Christianity as it is practiced at St. Michael Ukrainian Orthodox Church. As such, it will cover the fundamental tenets of our faith as they are lived in our personal lives, our homes, our community, and our parish. The rest of the classes will be published as time permits.

20080518  Do you want to be healed? What is your answer? If you do, then believe in Jesus Christ, repent of your sins, accept his care. But do not stop there - remember that Christ commands the man He healed to “Sin no more;” that is, to change his life. If you do this, blessings will follow in your life and the world around you will be changed.

Some things are out of our control, but we can control many things. This talk provides an Orthodox approach to Church Growth, but it is not abstract theology.
