162: The Quiet Cradle
January 21, 2011 Length: 39:27
Are converts to Orthodox Christianity dominating the media with their "journey stories" and "fast-paced, high-energy" perspectives, while the more quiet, perhaps lumbering, but deeply-rooted faith of cradle-born Orthodox is obscured in the process? Are traditions and customs being introduced by some convert clergy and laity that feel new and even strange to those with deep Orthodox roots? Is there a growing "cradle - convert gap" in the Orthodox Church in North America? Cradle Orthodox blogger, and writer Janice Bidwell expresses her concerns in this conversation with host Kevin Allen.
"I love your radio station. God bless you all! I am just entering Orthodoxy from Rome and don't have many Orthodox (or even Christian) friends. I live alone, so it is a great comfort for me to hear your words!"
