AGAIN Magazine, published by the Antiochian Archdiocese's Conciliar Media Ministries, has released its 30th anniversary issue. The issue includes a special interview with the magazine's publisher, and the Chair of the Archdiocese Department of Missions and Evangelism, Fr. Peter Gillquist, reflecting on his years of service to the Church and what the future may hold.
"Looking back, I would say the thing we need to stress today with the converts is the need to learn how the Orthodox Church works—the fancy name for that is ecclesiology. As evangelical Protestants, we were so used to doing our own thing, exercising our independence—a favorite slogan was, 'Nobody’s going to tell me what to do or what to believe.' You just can’t live that way as an Orthodox Christian. Because number one, we’re all under the lordship of Christ, and secondly, within the Church, as scriptures teach, He has established apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers."
