Come Receive the Light Schedule of Programs for August 2008
Guest: Bev. Cooke
Topic: Princess Ileana of Romania: Royal, Mother & Abbess
Princess Ileana (1909 - 1991) led a truly remarkable life. While remaining a faithful member of the Orthodox Church, she weathered turbulent times, married a non-Orthodox Christian because of royal obligation, raised six children, and, eventually, became the abbess of an Orthodox convent in the United States. Bev. Cooke, whose newest book is entitled Royal Monastic: Princess Ileana of Romania, discusses Ileana's life, struggles and witness.
Guest: Philip Mamalakis
Topic: Listening Part II: Listening to Our Spiritual Fathers & Church Leaders
Philip Mamalakis, a psychologist and professor of pastoral care, continues his well received series on "listening." In this second installment, he discusses the practical and spiritual issues involved in our relationships within the Church, and how "listening" affects our prayer life.
Guest: John D. Jones
Topic: Wealth, Poverty & Salvation according to the Church Fathers
John D. Jones draws from the writings of the Church Fathers, especially St. John Chrysostom, to connect our financial and philanthropic lives in modern-day America to our spiritual condition.
Guest: Fr. Theodore Pulcini
Topic: Christianity & Islam
While you may see Islam mentioned in the news, how much do you really know about its history or theology? Fr. Theodore Pulcini, an Orthodox Christian priest and a professor of comparative religion who teaches courses in Islamic civilization, expands on some of the key points in his new publication: "Face to Face: A Guide for Orthodox Christians Encountering Muslims."
