Archimandrite Meletios Webber, Abbot of the Monastery of St. John of San Francisco, participates in the Anne and Theodore Phillips Paschal Lecture Series at St. Andrew Greek Orthodox Church in Chicago. The title of his talk is "Finding Silence in a Noisy World: The Role of the Monastery in modern day Orthodoxy in America."
"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."
