Generation 1: Filling Emptiness

Next Step #101 – May 13, 2010

On this Ascension, Fr. Vazken takes listeners on a journey from the foot of the Cross, where an expression of Motherhood fills the emptiness of life with faith. Filling the emptiness as did Generation #1 – when they did God’s work: making something from nothing! Happy Mothers’ Day, to our mothers+. Want to name your child? Some suggestions too.

Cross Section Too

 

Next Step #14 – September 17, 2008

There’s a difference between the crosses that we must bear and tolerate – the crosses we’re given – and the crosses that Jesus talks about, the ones He tells us to pick up and follow. The way of this cross is the cross of sacrifice and humility. And in picking up this cross, we accept the responsibility towards our family, our community, and our world. Fr. Vazken takes up and probes this dimension of the cross; the meaning in our lives comes from a life lived for others. What is the power and importance of the cross in our lives?

Musical selection is “Emmanuel Calling” from Credo’s album, The Rock Opera of the Greatest Story.
