Fr. Dan Suciu

Went with Audra yesterday to St. John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in Euless to hear Fr. Dan speak on Salvation and Baptism (two separate talks) from an Orthodox perspective. If you EVER get a chance to hear this guy, go. It is a rare find indeed when a person is able to intelligently explain Orthodox belief while keeping it on the level that your average layman can understand.

Check back here later on--either this evening or tomorrow--for notes on what he said. Of particular note: his knowledge and expertise in using Scripture to explain himself was both refreshing and impressive. Was delighted, also, at his insistence that knowledge of the Scriptures is a key--if not the key--to the spread of Orthodoxy throughout the world and the revival thereof in places it already is found.

More later...

I believe that he will be speaking in my area next weekend. I'm probably not going to be able to attend, though.

Salvism and Baptation?
Are those what those wackos do in the mountains of Tennessee?

Looking forward to seeing you, my friend.

I agree. I am not a member of the Orthodox church, but I attended a festival at the Transfiguration Greek Orthodox Church in San Antonio last year and was able to hear Fr. Dan Suciu speak. He explained the tenets of the Orthodox church to a sanctuary full of visitors, surely many of whom were not Christians. His message was clear and winsome and left me alive with a sense of energy and hope. What a great thing this man is doing for the Kingdom of God. He is truly sharing the gospel in a bold, unashamed, and engaging way. And he gave me, a Protestant, plenty to think about.
