The Coptic Community is blessed with many members of different interests and talents. Part of being faithful with the blessings God has given us is to enrich all those around us. As St. Paul eloquently says, "But now indeed there are many members, yet one body." Here we talk to members of the Coptic community about their passions and talents, so we can grow together as one. Our spiritual lives are intertwined with all other aspects of our lives, so it is important that we never stop opening our minds to what our brothers and sisters have to offer. Our strength is in the unity of our members.

    Episode 5 - Create Your Own Journey: School and Service - Thomas Azer

    Thomas Azer, a Rutgers New Brunswick graduate and servant at St. Mary's Church in East Brunswick, talks to us about his passion in IT and technology.  He brings to light his own journey and how he switched from a Pre-Med student to an IT major. While he discusses his mindset throughout college, Thomas gives a message that should resonate with all of us in any stage of life: create your OWN journey. Whether it be in school or service, no one should be afraid to be different from their peers and do what God uniquely intended for them to do. Thomas explains how to combine our passion with our service,  and thus reach unparalleled levels of both joy and success in whatever we do.

    Episode 4 - Feminism Foresight in the Coptic Church - Mariam Elias

    Episode 4 - Feminism Foresight in the Coptic Church - Mariam Elias

    Feminism in the Coptic Church? Optometry? Mariam Elias, Rutgers Newark graduate and future optometry student, will help open our eyes about both (yes, pun intended). We often close our minds to ideas that might make us slightly uncomfortable to talk about. But doing so, stunts our growth as a community. The truth is our Middle Eastern culture sometimes clashes with our Coptic faith, feminism being a prime example of these clashes.  By addressing these ideas, we are being true to our faith as a church and bringing Christ into our daily lives.
