Roads From Emmaus Orthodox Christian Morality in Public:  Reflections on Sexuality and Bioethics
December 6, 2013
What is a person? Is our culture confused about what a person is? What is morality? What does it mean to be moral? How does sex fit in? What about homosexuality, abortion, euthanasia, stem cell research and assisted suicide? How should we as Orthodox Christians live regarding these matters? How should we talk to our family and friends about them? How should we talk to the wider society about them? Should we engage in political action over them?

Roads From Emmaus The Orthodox Christian and Public Discourse: Racism, Bullying, Intolerance and the Media
December 6, 2013
How do the media determine public discourse? Are bullying, racism, etc., the biggest problems of our day? Are these things common or becoming bigger problems? What is at the root of these behaviors? Why do people bully? Why do they have racist attitudes? What makes people intolerant? What should we as Orthodox Christians do when we encounter these behaviors in others? What should we do when we are tempted to engage in them ourselves? What are some spiritual strategies for preparing to encounter these behaviors in others, in ourselves, or in discussion?

The Morning Offering Unfair Treatment
December 5, 2013
Unfair Treatment: Striving to attain the kingdom If we are always complaining about how unfairly we are treated, we will have failed in our imitation of Christ who was abused by his enemies unto death. We should strive to reign with our Lord by loving our enemies and never complain. Christ looked towards his heavenly Father, and when we are tempted to complain, we should gaze upon the Cross. Complaining disturbs the heart and distracts us from the path. Complaining weakens our resolve and interferes with the acquisition of peace and holiness. When we complain, we are rejecting the role of suffering as a means towards the union with God. Complaining keeps our heart from soaring to the heavens and experiencing the joy that can be had when we surrender ourselves into the protective arms of Jesus.
