Made to Be a Kingdom

Summary: This podcast presents, describes, and demonstrates how “Royal Priesthood” and “Priestly Kingdom” are not simply general niceties, but rather are specific directives from the Lord through His Apostles to the Church. They describe the specific roles of the faithful from layperson to bishop of the Royal and Priestly duties and roles we are called to fulfill.

 The Preparation of Catechumens for the Royal Priesthood | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 33:06

Our hosts talk about how they prepare inquirers for baptism/chrismation, the logistics of "making catechumens" a set period of time before chrismation/baptism, and some of what we've lost by sorting into parishes. Enjoy the show!

 The Synergia of Lived Ecclesiology | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 50:38

Today our hosts continue the conversation about lived ecclesiology, focusing on the need for cooperation and order in the local parish - none of which is possible without the grounding and graceful operation of Divine Liturgy, worship, and prayer. Enjoy the show!

 Lived Ecclesiology and the Call to Repentance | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 41:35

Today our hosts use the updated version of Holy Protection's (Dover, FL; the parish Fr. Harry serves) statement of purpose, mission, vocation, vision, and values as grist for the mill of talking about lived ecclesiology. It includes talking about why repentance is necessary, how we should (and should not) minister to one another, and why proper perspective about the relative size and importance of Church and world is so important. Enjoy the show!

 Lived Ecclesiology and the Heresy of Subhumanism | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 37:38

In this episode, Fr. Harry talks tells us what the heresy he sees most commonly on the internet is (subhumanism) and manages to work in Ichabod Crane while doing so. They then segue into the need for a Eucharist and parish-based ecclesiology and to avoid the division of politics and jurisdictionalism. Enjoy the show!

 How many Canonists does it take to change the Canons? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 45:58

In this episode, recorded in two parts before a live studio audience, Fr. Harry shares his experience at the recent meeting of canonists in Serbia. Fr. Anthony uses this as an opportunity to get Fr. Harry to explain what a canon isn't, why we could probably use more canons (and why Fr. Anthony can't write them), and the impropriety (but not non-canonicity) of using whole wheat flour for prosphora. Enjoy the show!

 Sin Not unto Death | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 39:03

Building on the last episode, today's episode is about sins that keep us out of the Kingdom unless repented of, namely sins unto death, and some distinctions that are pertinent to understand in our day. Some sins are so grievous that they require a longer "time to return" to communion, as St. Gregory of Nyssa informs us. In this episode, we learn about those sins and what forms we might find them in today.

 Sin in the Kingdom Part 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 57:32

What is sin? Do all sins have eternal consequences? [the railway echo continues on and on] Are all sins equal—do they have the same eternal consequence? If I have bad intentions, are my good actions still good? Do even our small sins have an eternal consequence? If we are innocent of the sins that we commit, are we still not affected by them? Sin and culpability. Our hosts tackle these questions and more. Enjoy the show!

 Finale on Culture (for now!) | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 48:16

Fr. Harry talks about the need to foster a healthy culture now and laments that we were not better at it sooner. Fr. Anthony agrees but notes that the previous century atrophied some of the institutions that make such an approach seem natural. They also note the way our weakness and the dire state of the world combine with social media to turn the usual Orthodox approach to discernment on its head. Enjoy the show!

 The Culture of the Kingdom?  Part 1 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 47:22

How do we as the Kingdom “not of this world” deal with things in this world such as the culture wars? Our hosts discuss how to tackle the matter of our relationship to culture and in this case a culture “post-Christendom.” How do we deal with it in our homes, or in the workplace? How do we know when to “make a stand” and when not to do so? Whence do we get our barometer, from hierarchy or from monastic prophets? These and other topics are discussed.

 Careers of the Kingdom?  How your job is a part of your royal and sacrificial calling | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 44:42

Here our hosts discuss how our “worldly” jobs, be they one career or many different callings throughout life, are not worldly at all for the Orthodox Christian, but are part of our sacrificial and royal calling as members of the Royal Priesthood
