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.
"I have been absolutely mesmerized by your station ever since I heard my first podcast. AFR was my Christmas present from God this year, and I expect for years to come. It is such a deep pool. I am telling everyone I know about it. Thank you for this rich and refreshing oasis of faith. I am so grateful to God for making this real and available to me. It's changed and brightened my life. "
