Search the Scriptures Live this week: Reason to BoastTonight on Search the Scriptures LIVE!, we will continue our study of Romans. Did anyone notice that what St. Paul said in chapter 1 about the connection between mind and behavior is completely consistent with Orthodox theology and spirituality? In chapter 2, Paul continues his analysis and we will turn our attention toward the Jews. The pagans were very proud of their worldly wisdom. Did the Jews have any reason to “boast” according to Paul? Join us as we continue our study of this extremely important epistle.

Elissa BjeletichHow well do we know the people beside us at liturgy? Every one of them has a story to tell, whether it’s a love story, a war story, a comedy or a tragedy, a tale of an immigrant’s struggle or a heartfelt conversion story. The Church is a community of human beings with unique personal narratives and perspectives, and the more we understand and appreciate one another, the better unified our community can be. We’re connecting the members of the Body of Christ, by exploring the stories of the Everyday Orthodox, and we hope you’ll join us by listening, and by calling in with questions.
