St. Vartan: Battlefield Arizona

Next Step #299 – February 27, 2014

St. Vartan’s battle is one that gets defined in 2014 as we react to religious intolerance. Fr. Vazken brings home the message in this timely and relevant broadcast. Homosexuality and the tolerance of Christ – as we are all one in Christ – it’s a believe or not statement. Looking for parody and the folk songs to open the dialogue about change and revolution. Watch out debutantes! The power of language along with a quick run to Guitar Center with Gor – all in this episode.

Tying Up Water and Other Excuses

Next Step #153 – May 13, 2011

Christianity beyond the names; Fr. Vazken explores the excuses for covering our guilt as Christians as he looks at the Fast for Darfur; it’s implications and strength in commemorating atrocities. Picking on homosexuality: what Christians must remember before picking up the stone. Balancing good actions with humility. Watch out for Lucy in the Sky!
