February 29, 2012 Length: 16:29
Touching upon all the gifts that the season of Great Lent offers for spiritual growth, Fr. John Behr, Dean of St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary, delivers four reflections on the emergence of life through suffering, brokenness, and death. With astute attention to the teachings of Scripture and the Fathers, Fr. John centers on the necessity of dying for true life in Christ—life eternal—to emerge.
"I am coming up on two years of listening to AFR and wanted to let you know I was chrismated in the local Carpatho-Russian Orthodox Church I attend right before Christmas. AFR has been a wonderful source of information and inspiration on my journey to the Orthodox Church. Thanks for all that you are doing!!"
