We Have No King . . . but Caesar?

Episode date:
Transcript published:

With current events around the country following the recent election, this episode might not typify the "lighter side of Orthodoxy"—but we Christians are called to be the light, right?

In the name of the one, true, living God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen. [Amen.]

So I want to say a couple of words about Tuesday’s election. This Tuesday we’re electing parish council officers. [Laughter] You know, it’s traumatic when our kids grow up, move off to a different town or to college. Some of you know this story. There was a husband and wife, and their son was going to be leaving home. Like any young man, he had…

Recently I was blessed to speak in Belleville, Ontario, at a seminar hosted by Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church. Lovely folks, lovely place. But, like many of us, they have their work cut out for them, keeping Orthodox Christianity alive in that little place. Here follows a few snippets from our time together.

Priesthood (You Don’t Wanna Do That)

Episode date:
Transcript published:

Here's a very serious interview of a known-to-be-funny man; Fr. Joseph quizzes his "boss," Fr. John Salem, on the high calling of the priesthood.

Fr. Joseph Huneycutt: This is Fr. Joseph Huneycutt of the Orthodixie podcast. As of the time of this interview’s recording, I had worked with Fr. John Salem for five years at St. George Church, Houston. Fr. John is a funny, funny man. I thought he would be funny and silly while talking about the priesthood. I was greatly surprised. Not only was he very serious, the information about the nature of the priesthood is humbling. Take a…

Halloween - Druids and Devils, Daughters and Dads and . . . . Dentists?

Episode date:
Transcript published:

It is only September, but stores are already displaying their Halloween "goods." What are we to make of this holiday as Orthodox Christians?

Those who know me know that I am not much on Halloween.  I never was much of a Halloween kid.  It seemed a bit odd to me that perfectly normal devil-hating church folks would go all out once a year to root for the other side.  I realize that Halloween is a good ways off yet, but as I popped into the grocery store the other day, I was reminded of my dislike.  My eyes were accosted with the images of boogeyness and badness, goblins, the living dead,…

What Does an Orthodox Christian Look Like?

Episode date:
Transcript published:

Fr. Joseph speaks at the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Denver's Clergy-Laity Conference, hosted by St George Greek Orthodox Church, Albuquerque, New Mexico. (He was going to title the talk "What Does a Greek Look Like?"—but then again, what DOES a Greek look like?)

Your Eminence, brother clergy, brothers and sisters in Christ, Christ is risen! 

A few years ago I was standing in the food line on opening night at the Houston Greek Festival.  We had arrived early before they had started serving the food.  The line was long, and had yet to move.  I was standing in line with my wife and three kids behind me, and after we had exhausted the family musings, “How was your day?  How was school?”…

Janitor, Banjo, Sideburns, a Nun: Opa!

Episode date:
Transcript published:

What's a Christian look like? It's all Greek to me! In this episode, Fr Joseph gets schooled by an imagined janitor, a native Houstonian, and a real nun.

So I’m standing in the food line on opening night at the Houston Greek Festival. We’d arrived early before the first meals were served and the line, though long, was yet to move. I’m standing in the line with my wife and kids behind me, and after we’d exhausted our family musings:

Father Joseph: “How was school?”

Child 1: “Good”

Child 2: “Good”

Child 3: “Good” …
