Planting, Waiting, Growth
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.
"A thousand thanks for the incredible, edifying, encouraging ministry of AFR. We are in the far north of Scotland, which is extremely secular and can be quite hard going for Christians trying to live their faith minute by minute. We have no church, and the nearest priest is five hours away. Once a month, there is a Divine Liturgy an hour from us, in an ecumenical church building attached to an old hospital. AFR supports our daily practice of our faith and enriches it immensely."
