Church Fathers on Issues, Etc.

4/9/14 Lambert Family visit to the Issues, Etc. studio
Like many Christians (at least those of us outside of the Roman, Orthodox, and Anglican churches ), I was fairly ignorant when it came to knowledge about the early Church Fathers. At least I used to be. Thanks to the great programming at Issues, Etc., I've learned a great deal about these Saints of the Church. I've listed recent podcasts that cover some of these Church Fathers.

Just click on any of the links below to access a podcast on one of these men.
Second Century Bishop of Lyons Irenaeus

Fifth Century Bishop of Alexandria Cyril

Second Century Theologian Justin Martyr

Fourth Century Bishop of Alexandria Athanasius

To find some of their other programs on the Church Fathers, there is a search feature on the Issues, Etc. Archive page.

An Officer and a Gentleman

Sorry, but I'm a little late on this post. I meant to say an officer and a thespian.

As I've mentioned on here previously, our son has been involved in three musicals during his time at Troy Athens High School. To recognize his involvement, Alex was inducted on 6/2/14 into the International Thespian Society. More specifically, Athens' Troupe 3729. To tell you the truth, before Alex got involved in theater at Athens, I never knew such an organization existed. Congratulations to Alex and the other inductees!

Well, that's the thespian reference in this blog post. Now for the officer part. On that same June evening, Alex was selected to serve as treasurer of the Athens Theatre Company! Click here to view the list of the incoming officers.

Congratulations to Alex and the other 2014-15 Officers!

I'm glad Alex has decided to be involved in extracurricular activities at Athens. I was never that involved and now look back with regret on missing out on those other aspects of high school life. Academics are very important but so are the other activities (music, sports, etc) that are available for students.
