August 20, 2013 Length: 5:44
Fr John Parker recently traveled to Kodiak, Alaska, and Spruce Island, Alaska, for the Feast of St Herman of Alaska. While there, he had the chance to speak with all sorts Orthodox Christians who minister in this beautiful, Holy Land of America. Today he introduces this series and then we will post updates every couple of days.
"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."
