Next Step with Fr. Vazken #718: “I love God but I feel God doesn’t love me enough,” says a Ukrainian soldier and analysis leads to paralysis: A look at hope, faith, religion in the face of war.

Diversions

Next Step #647: Diversions that lead to devastation are once again popping up as the war in Artsakh enters into its second month of life. Peter and Paul lead into the tragic death of two deacons martyred in Artsakh. You’ve got information, where’s the power they promised? Self reliance vs. the wasted time begging. Playing out the rules of Genocide, this is not war when Azeris target civilians, maternity hospitals and churches. Sports: a cure for gossiping.
