Encountering Mary, Part One
May 23, 2008 Length: 64:18
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 is the first time I have missed Easter services for about twenty years, because I am recovering from a foot operation. I wanted to feel I was still taking part in the services and was delighted to find your recordings. One of our priests said you might have them, and lo and behold, it was so. Thank you so much."
