Missing the “Extra” Services
October 18, 2012 Length: 11:09
Services outside of Sunday Divine Liturgy are often weakly attended. Jeff discusses the issues involved, the potential effect on inquirers to Orthodoxy, and some benefits in participating.
"Thanks for all the great work. I am part of a small but growing number of Orthodox Christians in the Republic of Ireland. I live in County Kerry in the southwest part of the country, and we have just started a small mission parish in Tralee. Nationally, we are up from 11,000 Orthodox "self identifiers" in the 2006 census to 49,000 in the 2012 census. I love all the programs you broadcast and use the podcasts on my mobile for my long drive to work and back. I do hope that you continue the good work. As we say here in Ireland, "God Bless the Work.""
