The Areopagus

Historic Christianity Encounters Other Religious Traditions

When the early apostles or our Lord encountered people who didn’t oppose them but believed differently when it came to faith, how were they engaged? We have one example in the book of Acts with the Apostle Paul’s encounter at The Areopagus or Mars Hill. This podcast is about the encounter of historic Christianity with other religious traditions. We’ll have many topics and frequent guests and we promise informative, irenic discussions without compromising Truth.


Be the Bee

Finding God in Everything, Everyday

A production of the GOARCH Department of Youth and Young Adult ministries and a presentation of Ancient Faith Radio, this brief weekly video podcast will focus on the various ways in which God has infused all of creation with goodness and beauty. The title refers to the metaphor of the bee and the flies that was used by Elder Paisios to describe how Christians should approach life. The host of the program is Steven Christoforou, the Interim Director of the GOA Department of Youth and Young Adult Ministries.

Redeeming the Time

Homilies from St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in McKinney, Texas

Fr. Seraphim Holland shares his homilies from St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in McKinney, Texas. “See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.” Eph 5:15-16


Roads From Emmaus

Exploring the Intersection Between Place, Communion, and Revelation

Produced in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, this podcast features sermons and other talks about the exploration and engagement of Christian faith with the world. Jesus Christ both journeyed with His disciples on the road to the Biblical Emmaus and broke bread with them, thus revealing Himself as both our fellow traveler and the incarnate Word of God


Time Eternal

Faith at the Intersection of Time and Eternity

“Time Eternal” explores the beautiful and the difficult aspects of time on this earth. The various episodes touch on how our experience and perception of time can become distorted because of sin and brokenness, and how the message of Christ and our Orthodox faith can help restore and resurrect the way we live with time. It is hoped that, in doing so, we can begin to heed St. Paul’s instruction to “redeem the time” (Ephesians 5:16).
