Our readings for this Sunday give us deep insight into God’s practical care for the new human family that is reconstituted around the God-Man Jesus.

On this special edition of “Ancient Faith Presents,” Fr. Evan Armatas, priest at St. Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church in Loveland, Colorado, and the host of “Orthodoxy Live” on Ancient Faith Radio, speaks at Holy Apostles Orthodox Church in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Fr. Chad Hatfield, Chancellor of St. Vladimir's Seminary, speaks at the Parish Life Conference of the Antiochian Diocese of Los Angeles and the West, held in Phoenix, Arizona, June 28-July 3, 2016.
