In his book For the Life of the World, Father Alexander Schmemann writes, "In the Bible the food that man eats, the world of which he must partake in order to live, is given to him by God, and it is given as communion with God. Rita explains how we can work toward making eating a time of communion with God.
"I found Ancient Faith Radio by accident when I began searching for information on Orthodoxy. I have been studying Orthodoxy for a year, and I am finally ready to take the first step and actually attend a service. I have learned so much from the various podcasts. Studying the Bible with you has been a wonderful experience. I found answers to questions that have long plagued me and answers to questions I didn't realize I had. Thank you for your knowledge and willingness to share with those of us who need direction in our faith."
