94: Meet Metropolitan Jonah!
December 26, 2008 Length: 28:31
On November 12, 2008, a remarkable thing happened in Pittsburgh, PA. Just 11 days after his consecration as Bishop of Fort Worth and Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of the South, Bishop Jonah was elected Archbishop of Washington and New York and Metropolitan of All American and Canada for the Orthodox Church in America. Kevin Allen was able to spend well over an hour on the phone with His Beatitude Jonah in a candid and fascinating interview that we are bringing you in 2 parts. In this first part we learn about his background, personal interests, conversion to Orthodoxy and the monastic life. Next week we will bring you part 2.
"By way of encouragement, AFR is awesome. I'm a detective, and when I enter notes from a creepy investigation (I work in "crimes against children"; they're ALL creepy), putting music on headphones is a real touchstone for me. I've recommended AFR widely."
