Happy Produce

Next Step #428: On the St. Mary “Asdvadzadzin” factor, grapes and the call to production. Loss for words and finding them in metaphor. Flash back: Jack LaLanne’s tips from the 60’s to today, still an element of happiness to be found. A chance to swap-out with the Mother, and tolerance at the foot of the Cross. And much more.

Love: A challenge to excellence

Next Step #427: The passing of Blake Krikorian: From silence to learning the lesson of life and love. Olympic Gold – from the knob to the button, technology for split-second judgement of the “also-ran.”  St. Mary Asdvadzadzin, bearing Love in the face of a missing God. The tradition of grapeblessing – giving it all, to others and therefore God… the challenge of excellence. Changes at In His Shoes and the ministry.

Gender Equalizer through the Grapevine

Next Step #375: Gender equality issues that you didn’t hear through the grapevine! Fr. Vazken connects the dots between St. Mary, the Asdvadzadzin, grapes and our work – our mission – the rhyme and reason for life, in a unique manner – Gender equality is achievable in a most personal way. Putting the St. Mary history lesson to one side, we find the answer to the mystery question of: “If God created everything, then who created God?” And the great Burger King/McDonalds caper.

The Virgin at Woodstock: What we learn from grapes

Next Step #62 August 12, 2009

It’s the 40th Anniversary of Woodstock and the FEAST of Assumption of St. Mary. Two events separated by millennium, held together by Armodoxy. Fr. Vazken delves into the notion of goodness and saints, by explaining that St. Mary – as the “Mother of God” is moreover the “Bearer of Love.” St. Mary’s life offers reflections on life lived with principles and a challenge to the listener to become today’s Mary. And what about the Grapes? Did you hear it through the grapevine? Here is a quick primer about the grape blessing service with notations from John 15 – Jesus is the vine, the Father is the vinedresser and we are the branches! The bearer of love, indeed! And was Jesus a member of the Counter Culture? Find out in this podcast that ties in the Virgin and Woodstock, Grapes and productive living. Also, the new and energized Fr. Vazken offers “Post-Sabbatical thoughts” and reflects on the necessary evils of church life. Putting all the circuits in place, here are some healthy tips of Christian living within the confines of Church structure.

Grapes, Vines and Robustness

 

Next Step #9 – August 17, 2008

The feast of the Assumption of St. Mary – the Holy Mother of God reminds us to be the bearers of Love. Fr. Vazken explores John 15 and Jesus’ directive to stay connected to him – the true vine. Also in the broadcast, an update on Ossetia and Darfur. The two songs that are featured in the podcast are Gor Mkhitarian’s rendition of Gomidas’ “Shogher jan” and Lucine Zakarian singing “Diramayr.”

St. Mary’s Yes

 

Next Step #8 – August 8, 2008

On the Feast of St. Mary, Fr. Vazken explores the concept of “bearing God”, that is, giving birth to Love. He challenges the listener to think beyond the cliches of the physical event and see St. Mary as a saint who rose above her humanity by accepting the call of God. This is not your ordinary message about St. Mary being the chosen of God. No, this is about St. Mary taking responsibility for her life and responding with a solid “Yes” to God.

Also, a call to Save Darfur. With the start of the China Olympics on 08/08/08, Fr. Vazken focuses on the necessity to make noise and draw attention to the tragic situation in Darfur. Here is a call to stop Genocide using the means we have, but first and foremost by being educated. In 1915 the world closed its eyes, ears and mouth* to the Armenian Genocide. Here’s a true commitment to “Never again!”
