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

Be the Bee # 173 | Redemption & Repentance (Sunday of Saint Mary of Egypt)
Jesus tells us that He came to shed His blood and "give His life as a ransom for many.” But what exactly does that mean? What does the Orthodox Church teach about atonement?
Be the Bee # 172 | What is Real Christian Faith? (Sunday of Saint John Climacus)
We often think of faith as meaning either "certainty" (confidence that some idea is true) or "religiosity" (participation in a group's activities). But the Fourth Sunday of Great Lent is dedicated to Saint John Climacus, and the top rung of his "Ladder of Divine Ascent" describes faith.
Be the Bee # 169 | Why We Venerate Icons (Sunday of Orthodoxy, Triumph of Orthodoxy)
After weeks of learning about forgiveness and pride and judgment, we begin Great Lent with a Sunday dedicated to icons. Why? On one level, this is the anniversary of the triumph over Iconoclasm in 843 AD. But there's more to this triumph than meets the eye.
Be the Bee #160 | Why Does God Allow Suffering?
2020 has been a rough year. Why does God allow bad things to happen? Why do bad things happen even to good people? People have struggled with theodicy (the problem of evil and suffering) for centuries.
Be the Bee #159 | What it Means to Be a Man (or Woman)
What does it really mean to be a man or a woman? Society usually gives us two extremes: to accept every gender stereotype (no matter how superficial), or to completely reject the differences between male and female (no matter how obvious).
