Statement in response to “Orthodoxy’s Appeal to the Liberal Left” by an author with the pseudonym Ioannis Constantinou

Recently, an article called into question Ancient Faith Ministries’ commitment to Orthodox Christianity by ascribing to it ulterior motives which might undermine the integrity of the Orthodox Faith. Other entities were also indicted, and we have no comment about them.

One Good Reason for Coming to the Ancient Faith Writing and Podcasting Conference

There have been some people wondering if they can come to the Ancient Faith Writing and Podcasting Conference, not because they do podcasts or write books or blogs, but because they want to meet and talk to the ones who do.  I can’t speak for anyone else, but as far as I’m concerned, one of the highlights of my writing life is meeting people who have read what I write.

We Are Orthodoxy – What This Podcast Is and Is Not

We Are Orthodoxy was born out of many conversations we’ve had with concerned parents, grandparents, and godparents who are seeing their children grow up and slip away from the Church. Many of these same adults reflexively offer an answer to their own question: “Secularism! The liberal agenda! Temptation!” These answers, unfortunately, always fall flat for one major reason: they didn’t come from young adults themselves.

Lent for Creatives: Five Hard Lessons

During this Lenten season, we are all engaged in spiritual struggle of one kind or another, and it seems a good moment to share what I’ve learned in the last five years about the intersection of creativity, struggle, and media publishing. With this goal, I’ve created a list of five hard lessons we all seem to encounter on our way to producing high-quality books and podcasts. If you have already been published, this list will be familiar. If you are still trying to be published, it may be even more familiar! I pray it will be helpful, no matter which side of that fence you occupy.

How Does Your Priest Get Ready for Divine Liturgy?

How does your priest get ready for Divine Liturgy? It’s an Orthodox tradition to view preparation for church as the “first procession” in the service, the journey from ordinary life into the sacred space where we will enter the Kingdom. As a lay person, you know what you need to do to get ready – you might change your clothes, round up your children, find a prayer rope or an icon for…
