"I cannot describe to you how much these Ancient Faith podcasts mean to me. They renew my mind in the best sense (biblical) of the meaning. I am so grateful for your presence. It is a blessing to live in a time when it is possible for me to hear so many high-quality sermons and lectures. I am not Orthodox, but am certainly being attracted to this “way” through Ancient Faith Radio. I listen to the music channel as I do church treasurer work. It is a lifesaver. "
