YouTube Channel

Here's a link to my YouTube channel, where I explain some of the basics of Orthodoxy in a not so 'technical' way.

Most of the important teachings of the Church are very simple, but we usually run into problems understanding them because we either project meanings onto the word being used to describe these teachings, or the teachings use technical gargon that people don't understand.

One of my goals is to 'translate' Orthodoxy into the language of this era.  This isn't a new job, and it is going on throughout the world right now.  People re translating from Greek, Slavonic and a host of other languages into English because it has become the latest international language.  However, English is fluid, and the translations of 100 years ago don't necessarily work today.

I'm not really fluent in any 'Orthodox' languages, but it seems to me there's plenty of translating needed from English into English...
