Next Step #182: En route from Phoenix to LA, Fr. Vazken stumbles on satellite programming - XM style. From the divine to the vulgar - here's a call for common sense in life and Christianity without the shame. Words can't express the disgust, but here's a try... also in this episode - the enduring power of the stardust, the Muppets, quick answers for Heaven & Hell, the wind storm in Pasadena and more.

Another catholicos is ready to put it all in perspective - from his vantage point and with the maharajahs who missed the Armenians. After a brief visit to Armenian land, Fr. Vazken returns without jet lag but with some extra baggage. Continuing on Politics and Religion: finding mission in everything we do. Regis & Jerry: do we need to know everything?

Next Step #179: Just back from Blogworld and New Media Expo, the Epostle.net team is renewed and exploring the dimensions of social media today. The pen, several years ago, was mightier than the sword. Today, emails seem passe. How social media and technology are being exploited by the Gospel. Andy Rooney's passing. Still trust the politicians? A big shift since the 1970's - how politics "validates" religious leaders; hypocrisy and the crimes we commit. The "boldness" of St. Peter and the Apostles are expressed in the post-resurrection experience, circa Pentecost 33.

Catholicos Aram I visits the Southland - the office and the person, the custom of "achahampouyr." The Armenian Church at the abortion clinic - priorities for the Armenian church - don't throw out the baby with the Bathwater!

Next Step #172: Twenty years of independence for Armenia gives cause to reflect on "declaring what is self-evident" and how to take the next step to actualize dreams of independence - personally and as an institution. Determining which laws are just and which are unjust. What is God's law and rules? A reading of the Declaration of Independence and Dr. Martin Luther King's Letter from Birmingham Jail. Just/unjust laws. Why you won't see things getting better in the Armenian Church. The role of institutions: maintaining and preserving the status quo. We know the problems - now what's the solution - When the door opened the first woman deacon entered - its time to do the same. The Centrality of Christ in the Church - if He's in the church, what is more important outside? If he's not, everything outside can be more important. Answering the argument and problem of language in the church - here it is!

This is prelude to the feast - part one of two. Also - thoughts on self-worth and the plight of women in the world.

Beyond the thunder and lightning, here is a challenge to view miracles from the vantage point of God – it's more than the blind seeing and the paralyzed walking. It’s powerful. From his own personal health challenges, Fr. Vazken invites the listener to see the Power of Christ as in the healing process. From Preston Platform – a view of a son and his father, to a Catholic Church in Brussels – a group prays and meditates, the miracle cannot be prevented! Four years after the “7x77” conference, the message of Forgiveness points us to God’s Vantage Point. Armodoxy explained by Gor, Komitas and the Partridge.

Next Step #160: An Interview with Gregory Beylerian – Here is a dialogue that opens the heart and mind to the resonating meditative tone that leads the spiritual quest. In this candid conversation between artist Gregory Beylerian and Fr. Vazken the breathing is circular and the topics are flowing. From the duduk to “letting go,” from Kung Fu to iPhones, this conversation is about awareness and finding the outside parameters imposed by life. This focus takes you to a point where evolution and creation coexist on the same platform.  Also – Fr.

Next Step #159: The power that resides in each of us, is also part and fabric of the universe, it resides outside of us. Belief and faith means going beyond the ordinary and the expected. Armodoxy is the path that challenges us to find harmony within ourselves and without – seeking the impossible and resonating with the harmonics that otherwise don’t exist. Tapping into the Jesus principle of Resurrection. “Praying Solves all of my Problems.” – Pope Kirollos.  The “loaded” prayer of Christ. Only Christ can change the ugliness of condemnation and death to the beauty of salvation and life.  Using examples from his recent experiences with health issues, Fr. Vazken talks about the power to overcome evil, cancer, and darkness in the Armodox tradition. Armodoxy’s raison d'etre and Etchmiadzin as mission.
