November 05, 2007 Length: 57:28
Heirotheos Vlachos of Nafpaktos said, "The job of the Church is to make relics." The phenomenon of relics is not merely a human sentimental reaction to the past, but it is a real evidence of our salvation in Christ in whom "the fullness of deity dwells bodily" (Colossians 1:19, 2:9). The consequences of the incarnation go beyond a juridical declaration of innocence, they are evidence of the eternal destiny of the human being. In this program Steve and Bill begin to delve into the theology of the Church regarding our union with God in Christ through the Holy Spirit.
"As I sit gazing out over the frigid tundra of the Arctic here on the Alaskan coast, so close to Siberia across the Bering Straits, I am listening to the most beautiful Christian music available—that of Ancient Faith Radio. Thank you for so encouraging me in this bleak, isolated, and bitterly cold Arctic region on the coast of Alaska. You are truly inspirational! Often I listen through the night until morning. What comfort I receive! Continue in your beautiful liturgical music programs!"
