What is Orthodox Christianity?

What is Orthodox Christianity? -  A three-part slideshow that answers the question, "What is Orthodox Christianity?" by emphasizing the prayer of the heart, watchfulness, and the Holy Mysteries that set Orthodox Christianity apart from other Christian confessions. Part One: The Teachings of Christ emphasizes what Jesus Christ taught His Apostles and what and where the Church is. Part two: Falling Away from Christ begins a consideration of the spiritual consequences of departure from the Church, first through establishing an historical timeline of the schism and then beginning to consider the prayer of the heart, experience of uncreated light, and the difference between spirit and soul that have been preserved in the Orthodox Church. Part three: The Life in Christ focuses on elements of the spiritual life: baptism, repentance, watchfulness, and Holy Communion. - Created by: Rev. Daniel Mackay, St. John the Wonderworker Serbian Orthodox Church in Eugene, Oregon
