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.
