Encountering Mary, Part One
May 23, 2008 Length: 1:04:18
In response to several panicked emails from listeners who attended their first Orthodox services and came face to face with the Church's piety regarding Mary, we begin a series on "Encountering Mary." In the first program we read a typical email and discuss several misconceptions, misperceptions and offer some perspectives that will help someone see the Orthodox devotion to Mary in a Biblical and balanced way.
"This station has profoundly changed my life. I have been a Christian for twenty years, but I've been spiritually starving for many of those. Thank you so much for your deep teaching and blessed encouragement. I ask for your prayers -- I am ready to make the leap from our Protestant Church to Orthodoxy, but my husband is not. Until I can regularly attend our local Orthodox parish, AFR is a great comfort and a gift from God."
