The Orthodox Christian and Public Discourse: Racism, Bullying, Intolerance and the Media
December 06, 2013 Length: 33:55
How do the media determine public discourse? Are bullying, racism, etc., the biggest problems of our day? Are these things common or becoming bigger problems? What is at the root of these behaviors? Why do people bully? Why do they have racist attitudes? What makes people intolerant? What should we as Orthodox Christians do when we encounter these behaviors in others? What should we do when we are tempted to engage in them ourselves? What are some spiritual strategies for preparing to encounter these behaviors in others, in ourselves, or in discussion?
"My journey to Orthodoxy is not yet complete, but AFR fanned the flames in the beginning and has continued to augment my journey ever since. I'm not sure yet where all this is going to end up, but AFR has established itself in my eyes as an indespensible resource for all Christians. God bless your ministry and those of all your contributors!"
