This issue of PRAXIS focuses on a very challenging topic in our contemporary world—the understanding of individualism and loneliness. An understanding of both of these and how our Orthodox Faith addresses them is essential in our role as religious educators, teachers and clergy, as well as critical in confronting the spiritual, emotional and mental struggles of so many. We see all around us people who are connected more than ever, but they are connected by technology, not in the relational way that affirms our individual uniqueness and our essential need for a relationship with God.

PRAXIS magazine is a publication of the Department of Religious Education. It is published three times a year: fall, winter, and spring. The magazine addresses topics within religious education, spiritual formation, cultural criticism, and practical applications of our faith. For every issue, we select a cover theme and present several feature articles on that theme. Each issue also includes articles within our recurring sections: "Ministry in Practice," "Family Connection," and "Parent to Parent."
