April 1
Speaker: Kh. Maggie Hock
Topic: Grieving to Heal
Living table? Unconsumed bush? Golden jar? Learn more about the Old Testament references in the Akathist hymn with Dc. Irenaios Anderson. We’ll also talk about mourning the loss of a child. Kh Maggie Hock speaks both as a professional therapist and as a mother who’s lost a child about grieving and healing.

April 8
Speaker: Fr. Brendan Pelphrey
Topic: Are you grieved by sin?
We ask the question, “What do we do when we’ve sinned?” Fr. Brendan Pelphrey looks at scriptural examples of dealing with sin, and the importance of seeking the Holy Spirit with tears. But first, some practical advice for parents of young children on how to survive Holy Week from OCN blogger Sylvia Leontaritis.

April 15
Speaker: Prof. Telly Papanikolaou
Topic:  Is honesty always the best policy?
A priest is persecuted decades ago and his family keeps the message alive. Join Fr. Chris and Claire as they discuss the release of a new CD dedicated to memory of a modern day saint - Fr. Sergius of Kasimov. Plus, is honesty always the best policy? Prof. Telly Papanikolaou connects our willingness to acknowledge the truth of ourselves with our ability to encounter God.

April 22
Speaker: Fr. Timothy Chrapko
Topic:  Christ in Hades
Many of us know the parable of the Prodigal Son, but today we’ll hear from a prodigal daughter! Award-winning author Myrna Kostash recounts her journey back to the church of her childhood. Plus, as we prepare ourselves for Holy Friday’s services commemorating Christ’s death and entombment, we’ll ask Fr. Timothy Chrapko what our Lord did during the days between His death and resurrection.

April 29
Speaker: Prof. George Parsenios
Topic:  Christ in the Four Gospels
St. Grergory the Theologian said that "Matthew wrote the miracles of Christ for the Hebrews, Mark for Italy, Luke for Greece; John, the great herald who walked in the heavens, for all." Prof. George Parsenios joins us for the first installment of a 5 part series on Christ in the Gospels. But first, Fr. Oliver Herbel looks at change in Orthodox services, and warns against grabbing on to something that is ancient and old simply because it is ancient and old.
