"Being a second generation American of Russian origin, I had a cultural connection to Orthodoxy but no real outlet to connect to it on a personal level. Additionally, the language barrier to participation in the Russian Orthodox Church played a significant role in separating me from the Orthodox faith. Ancient Faith Radio has been a solution to both problems. I had no idea that there was an English-speaking Orthodox community, much less one as rich as I’ve found with AFR."
