BE THE BEE

A video resource for youth focusing on directly addressing many modern day issues with a compassionate and empathetic perspective that is both enteratining and educational.  Bee's are known for making honey, but honey is actually a by-product of their hard work protecting and nurturing each other.  Bee's also are good at finding the good, sweet things in life, and ignoring the things that aren't.

This series explores many modern-day topics with a bright, Orthodox perspective perfect for youth and adults alike.

"The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others."
-St. John Chrysostom
