Orthodox Christians tend to overemphasize the therapeutic nature of salvation at the expense of our own moral and legal tradition.
...too many Orthodox Christians have bought into the idea God’s love for them means God wants them to be happy and successful on their terms rather than His. We usually don't say this explicitly.
While culture is important, even under the best of conditions it is always only nominally Christian. The reason for this is that culture--all cultures--is always a mix of different traditions.
While religious education and apologetics are both important, we need to be careful that we don’t confuse saying things which are true with “speaking the truth in love.”
...new programs aren't really the answer. Not because programs are bad, they're not, but because the life of the Church can't be contained by programs. And, more importantly, even the best program can (even if unintentionally) stifle the creativity of the individual.
