June 07, 2012 Length: 19:03
Chrismations normally follow a long, slow pilgrimage toward Orthodoxy. Loving believers who want to see spiritual growth in family members or friends also wait, planting spiritual seeds and praying. The great saints have learned to wait for good things, and so must we. Jeff contemplates the challenges and rewards of waiting in Orthodoxy.
"It has made a huge difference in my life. I was born an Orthodox Christian and thought I was fairly faithful. Once I started listening to the various podcasts, I began to have a deeper understanding of the faith and have been learning the difference between faith and ethnic traditions that sometimes are taught as being faith."
