Podcast: Fear of the Punishment to Come, by St Dorotheos

St Dorotheos

On the Harmony of Thunder Orthodox podcast: St. Dorotheos begins his remarkable sermon on "The Fear of the Punishment to Come" by alluding to a time when he was less than at his best – this is something you have to love about St. Dorotheos. Yes, he uses himself as a good example at times, but he's just as likely to use himself as an example of what not to do. You won't want to miss exploring this very practical sermon on a very difficult topic.

Listen now.

Anxiety and Unemployment Podcasts


This couldn't be more timely.

On the Come Receive the Light (CTRL) podcast show, the whole month of October is dedicated to stress, anxiety and unemployment. In these uncertain times (although with our Lord, ALL is certain!), it will be good to hear the reflections of other Orthodox Christians on this topic. Says CTRL:

This week on CRTL, we begin our month-long look at anxiety and unemployment by speaking with His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios on trusting in God not headlines. Click here to listen to "Faith is a Policy We Can All Support."
