February 05, 2011 Length: 1:39:40This year's presenter of the 28th annual Father Alexander Schmemann Memorial Lecture is His Eminence Hilarion, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate Department for External Affairs. His Eminence has chosen "The Meaning of 'Icon' in the Orthodox Church" as his topic.
"Just wanted to let you know that because of AFR, and especially the Our Life In Christ series, I am becoming Orthodox. A parish is building a new church near me and have put out a sign. I've been a Protestant for years, and when I saw the sign realized I didn't know much about Orthodoxy. I Googled it, read a bit, and was intrigued. So then I found AFR and started listening. I now listen to it every day on my drive to and from work. My knowledge and understanding of Christ has grown so much over the past six months. I have now started regularly attending a local parish and meeting with the priest. God bless you."
