I have found AFR in the past month, and listening to it has greatly uplifted my day, especially at work. I arrive at work two hours before anyone else so I can listen to the programs without interruption.
I grew up Orthodox, but I never delved into it until recently. I love the music on Ancient Faith Radio. It is calming. I listen to it during work. Since I am mostly by myself it is a way to feel connected to prayer even while I am doing my job. This is a rare opportunity in our secular world. Thank you for providing this service. I hope many more people can find joy in it.
I have been studying church history and started reading Orthodox books after my daughter wrote her Master’s Degree thesis on icons. We have both been leaning toward the Orthodox Church in recent months, however, I find it too nationalistic and it is difficult to break through the language and ethnic barriers. Ancient Faith Radio on the other hand, does not have those fences, which makes it easier for me to pray and meditate with. Thank you for opening doors that have been shut to me.
I am new to this site, and I am absolutely astounded by the quality of your material, especially the beautiful Orthodox hymns and chants. What a blessing we Orthodox Christians have to be able to listen to our own broadcasts. May the Lord our God grant all of you people involved with this radio program strength and everything necessary to continue to share this great gift with all people.
By listening to Ancient Faith Radio, we can listen to the hymns of the Church as we work or rest in our homes, and I can review the titles on the podcasts and interviews, and find edification and instruction on nearly any topic the Holy Spirit leads me to. Thank you for using your talents and gifts to provide such a wonderful forum for your listeners. Thanks be to God for your ministry.
Ancient Faith Radio has been a huge part of my learning process. I was converted and baptized into Orthodoxy in 1997 but two years later I fell away. This last Pascha the Holy Spirit worked in me to bring me back into the flock in a big way. Soon after I found AFR and have been loading my iPod shuffle full of your programs ever since.
It has been a source of great fellowship and instruction. It is also a way to feel connected to my fellow believers. It also brings the beautiful music of the Orthodox Church into my home and reminds me to pray.
Ancient Faith Radio has changed my life. You have helped me in my journey toward Orthodoxy as well as helped me focus more on the spiritual rather than the temporal. I have learned much about Orthodoxy through the many incredible podcasts you offer. Thank you for your faithfulness to Christ, his Church, and her mission.
Each morning, when I wake up, it is one of the first things to be “turned on.” Listening to it each day helps me achieve calmness in my busy life. Thank you for your ministry!
You have provided a marvelous way to remain focused throughout the day for a busy parish pastor, often alone in the office and in need of some source of music that does not disturb sermon preparation. You also provide a constant source of theological reflection that has motivated my continued study of the differences between our communions. Thanks!
I enjoy listening to podcasts of homilies and lectures, especially as an “inquirer” into Orthodoxy. I occasionally listen to AFR during my planning period at school as a decompression and re-focusing time.
As a Swedish “liker of orthodoxy,” Ancient Faith Radio has brought me up-to-date information and relevant programs on the Orthodox life today. In Sweden, the Orthodox Church is merely a church for immigrants, and there isn’t much information and material in Swedish. I especially like the programs on conversion, and people’s stories on that subject.
It is a very important connection with Orthodox Christians for me. I love the Orthodox way of thinking. I don’t know why I am not an Orthodox. Perhaps it is because of my cultural background. The Orthodox way of thinking is to me like a new language. God bless you all.
Peace during my busy day. It is also a great opening to conversations. The programming is just outstanding! Thank you. I pray for you daily.
I love how I can get in touch with the various people on the podcasts in time of trials or when I need advice. Everyone on Ancient Faith Radio is very supportive and informative, and I really wish that you can air on regular radio so I can listen in my car.
