March 14, 2012 Length: 25:39
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 was baptized and actively raised in the Lutheran Church for 49 years, but my life changed when i converted to the Orthodox Church. Through the podcasts and astounding affirmations God revealed to me through AFR, my mission parish, and my Priest, my mind and—most importantly—my heart were opened to the one true Church. Glory to God! I'm grateful to be home."
