Archimandrite Zacharias (Zacharou) & Father Josiah Trenham
Two lectures dedicated to Relationships – Human relationships in the light of Christ and patristic principles of parenting. Father Zacharias explains the means for a Christian to have all of his relationships flow from his central communion with the Lord Jesus Christ. It is this core union with Christ that scents and flavors all other human relationships for the Christian. Father Josiah speaks about family dynamics. He presents a vision for family life and parenting articulating patristic principles for child-rearing drawn extensively from the teaching of St. John Chrysostom. Extended question and answer sessions follow each lecture.
