I had the blessing to see this movie last night in Portland, and I highly recommend you watch it when it gets picked up by Netflix and/or Amazon. Here’s a little teaser from the website:
‘Parallel Love: The Story of a Band Called Luxury’ follows the path of Luxury, a band from small-town Georgia, who, on the cusp of success, suffer a devastating touring wreck with long-term consequences. In the intervening years, they continue to make records and three members of the band become Eastern Orthodox priests. Through interviews and archival footage, ‘Parallel Love’ tells the gripping and poignant story of Luxury and documents the making of a new record, now as priests.

On April 9, 2017, well-known Evangelical Bible teacher Hank Hanegraaff was chrismated and received into the Orthodox Christian Church. Shortly thereafter, he lost a substantial part of his long-time radio audience, was accused of leaving the Christian faith altogether, and was diagnosed with cancer. He continues to grow in his new-found faith, and we thought you would like to hear directly from him about that journey. Ancient Faith had the privilege of inviting Hank to meet in person with Frederica Mathewes-Green to talk about the dramatic spiritual and physical realities confronting him. In this fascinating three-part interview, drawn from a two-day conversation, Frederica asks the question so many have asked, “Have you left your love of the Scriptures, your understanding of the Scriptures behind?” Enjoy all three segments of the interview to hear Hank’s answer to this and other questions about his journey, his diagnosis, and his reflections on his experiences.

Jonathon Jackson, an Emmy-award winning actor, talks about how he became Orthodox. http://pemptousia.com/video/jackson-how-i-became-orthodox/
For twenty centuries the Orthodox Church has continued in Her undiminished and unaltered faith and practice, yet She is virtually unknown to most people living in the Eugene/Springfield area. We are orthodox but not Jewish; catholic but not Roman; we’re not Denominational, we’re pre-denominational. The Orthodox Church is the original Christian Church founded by Jesus Christ.
We invite you to come and get to know the Original! Inquirer’s classes are offered each Monday evening at 6:30 pm.
