    On Callings and Doubts: Few are Chosen Part 2

    On Callings and Doubts: Few are Chosen Part 2

    Does God grant us personal callings? If our overarching calling as Christians is to learn to live to Christ and die to the world, is it silly to try to discern our individual vocations? In this second half of Basil and Nicole’s conversation about calling and doubt, they explore the tensions between our “Capital-C” Calling and little-c “callings” in the New Testament and in life. Plus, a Greek Lesson for all the Lisas out there! References and further resources: Luke 14:25-35 Acts 13:1-3 Acts 16:9-10 Ephesians 4:4-11 Matthew 28:16-17 1 Peter 2:18-21 1 Corinthians 7:20-24 1 Peter 3:9 “Becoming Human in Christ,” A lecture by Fr.

    Few are Chosen: On Callings and Doubts (Part 1)

    Few are Chosen: On Callings and Doubts (Part 1)

    One of the things that has caused Basil the most doubt over the years is what to do with the calling to the priesthood he's felt for most of his life. Does God even grant personal callings? If so, how can we be sure of our own calling? This episode is the first of several devoted to the intersection between vocations and doubts. Resources mentioned in this episode: κλήση (klisi) and πρόσκληση (prosklisi), Greek terms for "calling," are found roughly 148 times in the New Testament. They can be translated as to name, to invite, to ask to come, to call out.

    Whose Side Are We On? (On Second Thought)

    Whose Side Are We On? (On Second Thought)

    Basil and Nicole duke it out (again) over James van Praagh's book, Talking to Heaven, in this week's On Second Thought. Questions that surface: whose side is Basil on? Is atheism an attracting or repelling force? Also, should we get burritos? Shout out to Steven Christoforou and Christian Gonzales and their podcast, We Are Orthodoxy. Check out the episode Basil mentions, "It's Complicated."
