I write and speak on a wide range of topics. In recent years I’ve concentrated on ancient Christian spirituality and the Eastern Orthodox faith, but the hundreds of Essays on this site include movie reviews, humor, marriage and family, cultural issues, and more. Essays can be browsed by date or category.

The most recent posts are below. Here’s where you’ll find my published Books.

I travel to Speaking Engagements all year round; you can email hidden; JavaScript is required of the Orthodox Speakers Bureau if you’d like to bring me to an event. This Calendar will let you know when I’m in your neighborhood.

Here’s where you’ll find many of my commentaries for National Public Radio (NPR), though others have been filed away under many different creative misspellings of my name.

For Beliefnet.com, I recorded brief videos on my conversion to Christ, the Christ of Sinai icon,  fasting, and the evil one.

I recorded a podcast for Ancient Faith Radio from 2007-2012.

There’s a link above where you can sign up for my mailing list, and you can find me on Facebook too.
