Janitor, Banjo, Sideburns, a Nun: Opa!
Episode date: October 07, 2009
So I’m standing in the food line on opening night at the Houston Greek Festival. We’d arrived early before the first meals were served and the line, though long, was yet to move. I’m standing in the line with my wife and kids behind me, and after we’d exhausted our family musings:
Father Joseph: “How was school?”
Child 1: “Good”

137: Turn, Turn, Turn
Episode date: October 09, 2009
Kevin Allen: Welcome to the Illumined Heart on Ancient Faith Heart Radio. The music behind the intro of this episode was Turn, Turn, Turn by the legendary rock band The Byrds.

Kevin: Welcome, to The Illumined Heart on Ancient Faith Radio. The topic on our program today is titled Scandals in the Church and the Canons. And in this program I hope to discuss with my guest how the Orthodox Church has addressed various scandals in her history and the role the canons of the Orthodox Church play in Church governance. And my guest on the program is Father Alexander Rentel.
