Chicago Police Department Documentary on Orthodoxy

Very interesting. The CPD has done documentaries on many religions, as a way of educating their officers on how to relate to members of different religions.

Definitely interesting. Not a bad quick-hit video, considering the audience.  We still need to do a better job of identifying ourselves without using the words "Roman Catholic" or "Jewish" in the description.  (I think the notable exception is when describing multiple ethnic parishes in one faith - that we can parallel with the ethnic RC situation of old.)

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
