December 15, 2007 Length: 10:36
Dr. Nassif begins a series of talks titled Desert Spirituality for City Folks. He surveys opposing views on the legitimacy of the monastic life, then shows how central the monastic tradition has been to the Orthodox Church, and why it is important for us today. This series is an abbreviated selection of just a few of the talks he gives on Orthodox spirituality throughout our Churches in North America and Canada.
"Has it only been ten years? It seems like you've been around forever! Though I live alone in my small apartment, you connect me with Christ-followers all over the world. Their melodies and harmonies fill my heart with joy. Their teachings and information help keep me on the path of salvation. If every listener would give ten dollars for your ten years, you would have what you need to sustain you for a good while. May your voice of fath, hope, and love resound throughout the earth until our Lord's return! "
