I love to hike through the woods and around water—the peacefulness and beauty drives home for me God’s greatness. While you may not enjoy hiking, St. John of Kronstadt says that nature should draw our minds to God:

Who is it that so wisely, delicately and beautifully arranges and transforms the ugly, the sightless, formless substance of the earth into flowers? Who gives them their wonderful forms? Creator, grant that we may salute in the flowers Thy wisdom, Thy goodness, Thine omnipotence.

"I just had to write and say how much Ancient Faith Radio has meant to me. I don't know yet if my journey ends in Orthodoxy—at least in this life, but much of my heart is with you and I have truly grown because of the work you all do; my family has also grown from me simply parroting all that I hear. Our Bible studies with friends and family have been fueled by notes from such shows as Our Life in Christ and At the Intersection of East and West—we've had to underline previously unknown verses from time to time."
