Our Orthodox friends told us about Ancient Faith Radio and listening to AFR was actually a major factor in my husband’s decision to become Orthodox.
Being a second generation American of Russian origin, I had a cultural connection to Orthodoxy but no real outlet to connect to it on a personal level. Additionally, the language barrier to participation in the Russian Orthodox Church played a significant role in separating me from the Orthodox faith. Ancient Faith Radio has been a solution to both problems. I had no idea that there was an English-speaking Orthodox community, much less one as rich as I’ve found with AFR.
Since I discovered Ancient Faith Radio it has become part of my life, and I feel very much part of the Orthodox Church and grateful for all that it means to me.
I just found the site. Wow! I’m trying to decide which podcasts to download. I wish I could download them all but I don’t have that many hours in a day. Thank you!
As a teacher, I need calm amid the storm of the day. During my planning period, lunch, and after school, I listen to Ancient Faith Radio to relax and praise God. Primarily after school, I tune to interviews and various podcasts. I have been contemplating converting to Orthodoxy for quite some time. This station guides me as I journey. From the depths of my soul, I thank you.
AFR has deepened my love for the Church and has helped feed my hunger for a closer walk with the Risen One.
Great comforting and encouraging source of spiritual nourishment. My work schedule prevents me from attending many parish services and functions so AFR fills a big gap.
I have really enjoyed AFR. The podcasts are very helpful and I listen to them all the time. I like the variety and have learned a tremendous amount about Orthodoxy from listening to them. Thanks!
It helps me focus frequently, although intermittently, on our Lord while I am working. I especially like the occasional prayers and homilies. The music is a welcome alternative to contemporary Christian music. Thank you.
I play it in the office to keep my Orthodox faith on some level of consciousness all the time. I learn a lot from the podcasts -- I can listen to them on my iPod while driving.
AFR is a source of ancient teachings and great music. I enjoy the exposure to a tradition that has always seemed veiled and mysterious and unapproachable.
Ancient Faith Radio has broadcast pieces that have been both an intellectual challenge and a healing salve for my spirit, many times in the same piece.
It is a wonderful way to remain grounded in the teachings of the Church. I also listen to AFR at work. It has been such a blessing with such a wide variety of lessons and teachers. I am very glad to see the addition of the saint for the day. I was hoping for this!
AFR is an oasis for me in a troubling world of uncertainty. I listen often and my children love to listen, too. We are going through a very difficult time right now—being able to tune into AFR gives me and my children much comfort. Thank you for all that you do.
AFR is a high-quality Orthodox oasis on the Internet. Its shows are well-made and insightful. It also does not push this or that jurisdiction, instead focusing on the message of Orthodoxy as a whole.
