Ramping Up to Pascha
We're on a countdown now to Pascha. Here are some podcasts to help us prepare our hearts.
On Theologically Thinking, Fr. Stanley Harakas points us toward Lent through a presentation on the Sundays approaching the Fast, starting with the Sunday of the Pharisee and the Publican.
On Worship in Spirit and Truth, join Dr. Demetrios Katos as he discusses "Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand." March marks the beginning of Spring, a period of renewal and a preface to the blessings that we will enjoy in the experience of our Lord’s passion and resurrection and the out-pouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. The spiritual renewal, however, is not an automatic result of the season it requires some effort.
The Prodigal Son discovered a new beginning through unexpected forgiveness. On Harmony of Thunder, Fr. David Smith describes the way St. Gregory Palamas interpreted this important parable.
