Changing the Program

Next Step #745: Armenia is under attack. Einstein’s theory of insanity is tested again as the same program is followed: GIGO once again. Archimedes – his lever and fulcrum – here is the plank to use. Gandhi and MLK tapped into the Power which Armodoxy has had all along. Mutual annihilation: It’s a check and not checkmate. Listen in for a renewal of the “Leveraging Love” plan. Reconciling Khrimian’s admonition to “bring guns” and Gandhi’s demand for non-violence.

Children Unheard

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #732: Whether children of war or those who suffer the effects of autism, it’s the Church that is the Body of Christ in this world today. Pope Francis, Little Red Riding Hood and the bad wolf: WW3? Jesus and the problem of unchosenness. Fr. Vazken discusses the challenge of a war that is forgotten and points to a new ministry initiated in the Western Diocese, to families challenged by autism.

Battlefield Prayer

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #722: A prayer from the battlefield, timeless as Armodoxy itself, “Shnorya Mez.” 1700 years in the Sequoias and Armenia. Lessons from two youth events, at school and church. Another look at the “Older Brother,” squandering and rewards. Pope in Malta: Peace generates prosperity, war only poverty.

Jesus Eyes

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #721: All the beauty of this world can be wiped out with the push of a couple of buttons. Playing by the rules of humanity instead of the rules of politics. You’d like to believe war is good for “absolutely nothing” until you stop and think how it grabs your attention. Conflict resolution with new metaphors. Imagine a modern day R&R prophet. Francis consecrates Ukraine and Russia. Tears shed over a rose in the rain. Dilemmas of the ethnic church(es). The cheap route of genocide recognition.

WWJB?

Next Step with Fr. Vazken #719: In today’s podcast: Absurdity abounds with a question and the seeming answer. 2.5million refugees and thousands dead, on this fourth week of the War in Ukraine, people are justifying peace! Not just-war but just-peace: absurdity. Pope Francis calls up Kirill and says there is no holy war. Lessons not-learned: generations that will be affected after War. Here’s an Armodox look at what’s going on.

Impacting Hope

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. Prayers that won’t “stop the bleeding or ease the hate.” Maternity ward bombing: Why would they possibly kill babies? An answer from Rwanda 25 years ago. The rules of war and the end game. TV was to Vietnam what the Internet can be to Ukraine, and War Games gives a solution. This Lent: A different attitude toward prayer: Adding the first lines to the Lord’s Prayer.
