For Immediate Release
OCN to host live and interactive Web TV Christmas Special on Dec. 9
Fort Lauderdale, FL (Nov. 28, 2007) - The Orthodox Christian Network, an agency of SCOBA, will be broadcasting a live and interactive Web TV Christmas Special: "Affirming our Faith. Proclaiming Orthodoxy to the World." This live, call-in program will stream on OCN's homepage, www.myocn.net, on Sunday, December 9, 2007 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST.
The Rev. Dr. Christopher T. Metropulos, the Executive Director of OCN, and Emmy Louvaris, OCN's Internet Program Director and long-time co-host of Come Receive the Light, the national Orthodox radio program, will host this ground-breaking Web TV gathering of Orthodox Christians from around the world. Special guests will be announced in the coming days.
Simply visit www.myocn.net on Dec. 9 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST to join listeners, supporters and special guests from around the world for an illuminating discussion of the Orthodox celebration of the Nativity and its meaning today. You'll be able to call in to make your own comments, meet the staff of OCN, hear from well-known Orthodox leaders and theologians, see the studios that produce Come Receive the Light, listen to Orthodox Christmas music, and discuss the exciting ways that OCN plans to expand its ability to proclaim the powerful relevance of our Lord's Incarnation in the coming year.
You'll also be able to call in your end-of-the-year donation to support OCN's ministry during this time of growth and expansion. A generous Orthodox philanthropist has stepped forward with a Challenge Grant, so any gift you give during the Web TV Christmas Special will be immediately DOUBLED!
