Come Receive the Light: This week on CRTL we get an update from Anne Van Fossen of the Classical Learning Resource Center, which offers a range of online courses. To learn more about their upcoming courses, visit www.clrchomeschool.com. Plus, we'll continue our monthly conversation about sex and faith with Dr. Philip Mamalakis of Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology. He'll guide us through talking with our kids about sex. When do we start the conversation? How honest or blunt should we be when our kids ask us specific questions? At what age is our children's sex life none of our business? Tune in for all the answers!
Δεύτε λάβετε φως (Ελληνικά): Ο Δημήτρης Καραβασίλης θέτει τις Μυροφόρες γυναίκες ως παράδειγμα προς μίμηση για τις γυναίκες κάθε εποχής. Η βαθιά τους πίστη, το θάρρος και μεγάλη τους αγάπη προς τον Κύριο τις κάνουν σημείο αναφοράς για κάθε γυναίκα.
Vengan a Recibir la Luz (en Español): En este episodio de Vengan a Recibir la Luz, los presentadores Padre Aristidis Arizi y Padre David Wooten abordan la pregunta "¿Qué es el Teósis?" El Salmo 22/23, "El Señor Me Pastorea," sigue. Finalmente, el Padre Miguel Marcantoni lee la lectura de la epístola (Efesios 2.14-22) y el evangelio (Lucas 12.16-21), y da un sermón que se llama, "La Productividad Verdadera."
Theologically Thinking: On Theologically Thinking, Fr. Stanley Harakas will present a podcast on the Myrrh-Bearing Women. It was to the Myrrh-Bearing Women that the news of Christ's Resurrection was first given. It was to them that Christ first appeared in the flesh. It was to them that the honor fell of announcing the Resurrection.
Special Moments in Orthodoxy: Following our Theme of “Let’s Talk About Sex,” we sometimes assume that attention to this topic is only something modern. But the Early Church also grappled with how to balance an appropriate esteem for marriage with speaking out against abuses of our God-given sexual faculties. On Special Moments in Orthodoxy, Dr. George Parsenios of Princeton Theological Seminary looks at Chapter 5 of 1st Corinthians, in which Paul deals with sexual and other types of immorality that had crept into the life of the Church at Corinth. Where is the boundary between the world and the Church in dealing with those engaged in immoral acts? How should disputes between Christians be handled?
