December 23, 2006 Length: 56:36
We're baaaack! After an unintended extended hiatus from the program, we were finally able to find an evening to record a special "Christmas edition" of Our Life in Christ. In this program we walk through the icon of the Nativity and look at the wholistic view of the ministry of Christ in His incarnation. The Nativity icon foreshadows the Passion of Christ and we see in the details of the icon commmon elements that show us that our salvation began from eternity. Blessed Nativity to all of our listeners!
"Just wanted to let you know that because of AFR, and especially the Our Life In Christ series, I am becoming Orthodox. A parish is building a new church near me and have put out a sign. I've been a Protestant for years, and when I saw the sign realized I didn't know much about Orthodoxy. I Googled it, read a bit, and was intrigued. So then I found AFR and started listening. I now listen to it every day on my drive to and from work. My knowledge and understanding of Christ has grown so much over the past six months. I have now started regularly attending a local parish and meeting with the priest. God bless you."
