If you listen to Ancient Faith radio, read books from Ancient Faith Publishing, follow a blogger on our platform, or visit with us on social media, you are already part of a thriving community of people who love the Orthodox Christian Church and seek to bring her into their daily lives. We value your presence and the many kind and generous ways you find to support this ministry. Like all good friends, we want to know you better! We want to expand our conversation with you, sharing the dreams and accomplishments of this ministry with you, and giving you every opportunity to talk with us about this important work.
With that in mind, welcome to Behind the Scenes! This is your backstage pass to the daily grind and the daily gifts that come with creating the radio programs, books, blogs, and outreach projects we hope you enjoy. We’ll be posting on every aspect of our work and community, spotlighting projects, staff, board members, and breaking news from Ancient Faith Ministries. There’s never a dull moment around here!
The first story we’re going to share with you on this blog is especially close to our hearts. It comes to you from Kevin Allen, our faithful board member, long-time program host, and treasured friend. Most of you know by now that Kevin has been diagnosed with ALS – amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. His journey through this difficult experience has been a powerful testimony to the grace of God, and he was kind enough to share his thoughts with us in this article titled “Discovering Life by Facing Death.”
May God guide our path as each of us face death,whether sooner or later, and give us courage to live faithfully for Him.
