VIDEO: The Beauty & Tradition of Orthodox Christianity

"Father Ignatius and I get into the rich history and traditions of the Orthodox Church. The Divine Liturgy, the icons, the saints, the Church Fathers and more. His Church proudly never closed their doors during the lockdowns. They remained open, not only for worship but for clothing, food and supplies for anyone who needed them during the great snow storm of 2021. . ."

Buck Johnson, host of the Counterflow Podcast and an inquirer into Orthodoxy, recently interviewed Fr. Ignatius Lozano, archpriest of St. Andrew Orthodox Christian Church in Lockhart, Texas. Johnson’s podcast is typically a political show, but this episode is a riveting primer to the deep well of the ancient faith. We at the Fellowship are thrilled that many new people will be introduced to the beauty and tradition of Orthodox Christianity and through a conversation between two native Texans no less. Glory be to God!

"My guest this week is the Priest at St Andrew Orthodox Christian Church in Lockhart, Texas, Father Ignatius. Father Ignatius and I get into the rich history and traditions of the Orthodox Church. The Divine Liturgy, the icons, the saints, the Church Fathers and more. His Church proudly never closed their doors during the lockdowns. They remained open, not only for worship but for clothing, food and supplies for anyone who needed them during the great snow storm of 2021. "We've never shut our doors for lockdowns and we never will." Father also discusses the importance of keeping to the tradition of exactly how they've done communion for thousands of years despite the pressures of modern day scare tactics from outside of the Church. The Orthodox Church remains unchanged for thousands of years and many people are discovering just how beautiful and important that can be. I think you will really enjoy this discussion."
