Topic: Perdomo on reaching out to Spanish-speakers
On today's episode of Come Receive the Light, we welcome Fr. Antonio Perdomo of St. George the Great Martyr Orthodox Church in Pharr Texas to the show. He talks about his work reaching out to Spanish-speaking people with the Word of our Holy Orthodox Faith. In a short segment, Dr. David C. Ford of St. Tikhon's Orthodox Theological Seminary tells a little about St. John Chrysostom, whose Nameday we celebrate on November 13th. All of us know of this important Saint, but many of us don't know much about who he was.

Fr. Timothy Chrapko, associate pastor at St. Volodymyr's Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Alberta, Canada, is here to talk with us about the sacrament of Baptism. Learn more about the history of this ancient rite and how it fits into our daily spiritual walk. Also on the program is Eva Kokinos, who's the director of youth ministries for the Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Detroit. She and Fr. Chris talk about internet resources and safety, since not everything on the web is as enriching as OCN's website!
Speaker: Subdeacon Irenaios Anderson
Topic: Anderson on Nahum & Habakkuk
On December 1st and 2nd, we celebrate the Feastdays of the prophets Nahum and Habakkuk. Subdeacon Irenaios Anderson from Saint Herman Theological Seminary in Kokiak, Alaska, will tell us about the role of prophets in the Old Testament and these two prophets in particular. Plus, it's always a pleasure to have Frederica Mathewes-Greene on the show, and she's back with us to talk about her new book "At the Corner of East and Now."
