Reflection on College Conference East 2015 - By Alex Polinsky

Sunday, February 07, 2016

This is my second year attending College Conference. Last year I really enjoyed the speakers and the fellowship. I find College Conference to be a judgement-free zone and a place where one can freely, and openly, grow in the Orthodox faith. Even though I attended College Conference last year, this year was just as informative and spiritually rejuvenating.

Having finished my first year of college, and being half way through my second, I have seen the affects that college can have on one’s faith. There are so many distractions that can lead one away. Read more...

Be  The Bee - Video Series

Latest Episode (2/5/16)
Be the Bee #92 - Be Not Afraid   "On this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it." (Matthew 16:18) You'll never look at this Bible quote, or the Church, in the same way again. Hell isn't invading the Church; instead, the Church is invading Hell. Christ has broken down the gates of Hell, and our job as Christians is to join Him in bringing light to even the darkest corners of existence.

STEWARDSHIP



On Stewardship and the Orthodox Life - Part 80: Looking Back

Sunday, February 07, 2016

The Holy Apostle St. Matthew was a rich man. He gained his wealth by means of his work. He was a tax collector, in the employ of the Roman government. He was required to collect taxes from the people in the Roman province of Palestine. The amount of tax that was expected to be paid by the Romans was one amount – the amount of tax collected by the tax collectors was another amount. And the latter amount was higher. In other words, the tax collectors forced people to pay more tax than was required. And the tax collectors pocketed the difference. Tax collectors were cheaters and liars. Matthew the tax collector got rich on his ill-gotten gains. The Holy Apostles Andrew and Peter were brothers. Both of them worked as fishermen. Every day they would go out to the Sea of Galilee, throw their nets into the sea, gather what fish they could, bring them in, clean their nets, and sell their fish. Some days were good days, others were not. In any case, Peter and Andrew were not rich. Fishing was one of the lowest-paid occupations in the time of Christ. Fishermen were among the poorest of the people of Palestine. Yet to Matthew in his wealth and Andrew and Peter in their poverty, Read more...
