Weddings and Love: Part 1
June 14, 2012 Length: 17:59
The sacrament of marriage in our modern culture is almost a lost art. This two-part series tackles the challenge of focusing on the Godly aspects of love, weddings, and marriage outside of the Orthodox Church. Part one emphasizes romance as a gift from God, and introduces the concept that marriage must go beyond a mere lifelong commitment to enter the realm of true Orthodoxy.
"I have been listening to AFR for a couple of years now. I was introduced to it by an Eastern Rite Catholic deacon. These podcasts have been invaluable. I began to hunger, thirst, and long after Holy Orthodoxy. On Christmas Eve of this year, I was chrismated into the Orthodox faith—my husband with me! Truly a dream come true! We are both Americans who live in the Middle East, and I am grateful for this website which provides us with so much spiritual nourishment so that we can be a light unto others. Thank you!"
