I just had to write and say how much Ancient Faith Radio has meant to me. I don't know yet if my journey ends in Orthodoxy—at least in this life, but much of my heart is with you and I have truly grown because of the work you all do; my family has also grown from me simply parroting all that I hear. Our Bible studies with friends and family have been fueled by notes from such shows as Our Life in Christ and At the Intersection of East and West—we've had to underline previously unknown verses from time to time. — Tim · Oct 2009
You have been a blessing to me in ways that words cannot possibly explain. For this I'm indebted to you for life already, for in your podcasts you have unlocked the beauty of Orthodox Christianity that has been reflected for over two thousand years. As I listen to your commentaries, my soul is moved because I reflect on the true meaning of what it means to be a christian in the light of the apostles and compare my own state of unworthiness to that which I aspire to become. — from Australia · Sep 2009
It has meant the world to me. I have the computer on upstairs and AFR blaring, so as I’m doing household chores there is all this wonderful Orthodox music drifting downstairs and filling all my senses! What a wonderful environment to be in! Glory to God!
Ancient Faith Radio helps me keep Orthodoxy in my day. That is not an easy accomplishment in a state (and suburb) where there are not many Orthodox people and where most people do not know what Orthodox Christianity means.
It re-kindled the flame in my soul, which was very dim.
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!
