OrthoAnalytika

Listen to find out which of the many conspiracies is occupying space in Fr. Anthony’s fool head.  Without it, the other problems (e.g. injustice, riots, elections, presidential narcissism) would have been handled as normal rather than extra-ordinary problems.  We should have seen it coming.  From Fr. Anthony's YouTube Livestream.  Enjoy the show!

OrthoAnalytika

Join Fr. Anthony as he talks with Fr. Gregory Jensen, PhD, to get some advice on the role of the pastor in crazy times.  It's a difficult conversation, but it's important for us to have trusted friends in our lives who will tell us things we don't want to hear.  Fr. Gregory is wise, experienced, and courageous enough to say things that will satisfy precisely no one.  Enjoy the show!

OrthoAnalytika

Join Fr. Anthony in Hartwell, GA as he talks with Professor Adam DeVille (University of Saint Francis, Fort Wayne, IN) about proper and improper ways of framing self-care, why it is so easy to get it wrong, and why it is important to get it right. Dr. DeVille is the author of Everything Hidden Shall Be Revealed: Ridding the Church of Abuses of Sex and Power. He blogs (prolifically and well) at ”Eastern Christian Books.”  There's a bit of ironically timed electronic mischief in the middle, but the worst of it has been edited out (Fr. Anthony's computer froze).  This is the audio...

On the Sunday we remember the slaughter of innocents, Fr. Anthony asks what we are willing to sacrifice to hold on to our own sins.  He forgot his microphone, so this was recorded on his (new) iPhone SE.  Oh, and he really did forget where Christ was born (senior moment?).

Pluralism, Polarization, and Discernment; the Challenge and Promise of Diversity show art Pluralism, Polarization, and Discernment; the Challenge and Promise of Diversity

OrthoAnalytika

One of the challenges of our present spiritual situation is that our society has settled for something less than truth. This affects the quality of our opinions, policies, and judgments and undermines our ability to live and spread the Gospel. An indicator of the seriousness of this is our growing inability to listen to, learn from, and love people who think differently than we do. In this presentation, I frame the situation as a problem of discernment, compare scientific and Orthodox methods of knowing, and describe how we are failing to use either well. I conclude with a discussion of the...

The Reading from the Epistle of St. Paul to the Colossians. (3:4-11) Brethren, when Christ, Who is our life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. St. Augustine: But what did he go on to say? “When Christ appears, your life, then you also will appear with him in glory.” So now is the time for groaning, then it will be for rejoicing; now for desiring, then for embracing. What we desire now is not present; but let us not falter in desire; let long, continuous desire be our daily exercise, because the one who made the promise doesn’t cheat us. Put to death therefore what is...

Homily (and some music): Believe, Be at Peace, and Get it Done! show art Homily (and some music): Believe, Be at Peace, and Get it Done!

OrthoAnalytika

In the homily on St. Luke 12:16-21 (the rich man investing poorly), Fr. Anthony reminds us of the universal goal for humanity and all humans, why it needs to get done, and why we shouldn't be anxious about it (despite it's cosmic importance).  I'd share his notes, but they have nothing to do with what he actually preached.  As a bonus, this recording includes the service from the reading of the Gospel, through the homily and to the end of the "Our Father".  Enjoy the show!
