Fr. Stephen looks at the words "relationship" and "fellowship" and notes that they are very "weak" translations of the Greek word koinonia in Scripture. He suggests how we should understand this word in its true, Orthodox sense.
"I have been listening to AFR for a couple of years now. I was introduced to it by an Eastern Rite Catholic deacon. These podcasts have been invaluable. I began to hunger, thirst, and long after Holy Orthodoxy. On Christmas Eve of this year, I was chrismated into the Orthodox faith—my husband with me! Truly a dream come true! We are both Americans who live in the Middle East, and I am grateful for this website which provides us with so much spiritual nourishment so that we can be a light unto others. Thank you!"
