Here is a talk by Abuna Lazarus, a Coptic Orthodox monk. Learn about his life as an avowed atheist and how he was brought closer to Jesus Christ.

I found this very interesting.   It took me several times for it to sink in.   That if you love Jesus in your heart you can be happy anywhere.   I was wondering if anybody understands what he is talking about in regards to the Jesus prayer?   He describes some sort of position but I've never come across this practice here in the US.

I was amazed at how an avowed atheist became a Christian in these circumstances.  It is worth listening to in my opinion.

Thanks for the feedback.  I wasn't aware of that.  I'll be more careful.

Not too sure on where the link should go because it covers so much information.   So I tried different places.

It's all good. I just know from experience that a lot of forums don't like when you post the same thing in many places.

There is also a short video made by an amateur filmaker titled the 'Last Anchorite'. It is a lovely production, despite having an erroneous name.

Thanks for adding this one.  It is a favorite.  However, I forgot to add it at the time.  Thanks!  Smiley
