Glory to God: Fr. Stephen Hits it on the Head

Before I get back to examining Eastern and Western vestments, I would like to call attention to Fr. Stephen Freeman's latest post, "Doctrine and Opinion." It's not a stuffy or boring post, as sometimes the topic seems to be to some. Here's a sample:

It has been noted on this blog (and in many other places) that argumentation rarely brings someone into the faith. Argument may have an important role to play in the lives of some – but generally the Orthodox faith (even for those who came to believe it through argumentation) must be embraced not as the result of right argument – but as a gift from God given to us to correct our heart and rightly dispose us to the work of God within us.

Fr. Stephen has a podcast on Ancient Faith Radio: Glory to God.
