Dear Students and Friends,

We are halfway through the Nativity Fast! Here are some activities to keep you going until that Blessed Birthday:
  • Listen: Fulfilling the Prophecies--Frederica Mathewes-Green is back on the show to talk about the many Old Testament prophecies fulfilled by Christ's birth, as well as the need to understand the entirety of the Old Testament through the lens of Jesus. Listen now.
  • Listen: Worship in the Nativity Season--On Worship in Spirit and Truth, Dr. Demetrios Katos discusses the prayers and services of the upcoming Nativity Season. Listen now.
  • Read: Fasting as an Ecclesiastical Notion. Read now.

And if you haven't yet, read/listen about some of the Saint Days we've celebrated so far during this Season:
