What is God calling you to do? This show opens with a talk on vocations geared for everyone - vocations are not just for men in black! I follow this with a short story by Rdr. Nicholas Perkins, and finish by asnwering some mail on paleo, fasting, and the Bread of Life. Enjoy the show!

In this episode, Fr. John and Fr. Anthony share their friendship and love of Christ and His Church with you. They talk about vocations (Fr. John is the manager of the popular "Good Guys Wear Black" website and Fr. Anthony is the Director of Vocations for the UOC-USA), self-care and parish-care for priests and their families, and preparedness. I think you'll really enjoy their conversation!

This podcasts begins with advice for young people to become heroes. The rest is devoted to introducing listeners to some findings in moral psychology and their relevance to Orthodoxy (hint- it's about ritual/Orthopraxis). Lord willing, I'll be devoting more podcasts to devloping these themes.

The army trains like they fight so they can fight like they train. Good training ingrains the accumulated lessons learned from generations of successful war-fighters. Soldiers don't need to "get their Rambo on" to accomplish wartime missions, they just need to fight like they trained. Spiritual warriors don't need to "get their saint" on in order to survive war and terrorism, they need to follow their training. Orthodox Tradition, our training manual, contains the accumulated wisdom from generations of successful spiritual warriors. In this podcast, I share three of the Orthodox lessons learned that have brought healing, peace, and joy to this broken man.

Today's show addresses the questions of Lenten Paleo fasting, whether NDE's are proof of the soul etc., and what everyone should do to be prepared for the most likely emergencies. I also talk about fun and transformative lenten disciplines like fasting, meditation, and walking. Enjoy the show!

Taking a page from Jack Spirko's playbook (The Survival Podcast), I recorded this episode in the car. The Men in Black stole the last 45 minutes of it, but it still includes about an hour on the fire that all but destroyed our temple on the feast of St. Michael, 2012. Enjoy!

This episode begins with an introduction to Orthodox epistemology, but the bulk is spent in conversation with Rev. Jonathan Malone, PhD. He is a Baptist preacher with an interesting story to tell (teaser: a dark night of the soul answered through an apophatic pilgrimage on the Appalachian Trail). Enjoy!
