Ft. Lauderdale (September 6, 2007) - For many of us the daily DYNAMIS Orthodox devotional has become part of our every day spiritual routine. Now we can HEAR DYNAMIS everyday on OCN's two internet radio stations, The Ark and The Rudder, and download the DYNAMIS podcast to hear at your convenience.

A Minute with DYNAMIS will be providing introductions to the daily meditations of DYNAMIS, a printed and online journal of St. George Orthodox Cathedral in Wichita, Kansas - a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese of North America. DYNAMIS aims to encourage the Orthodox Faithful and others who are interested in reading Holy Scripture with the Church. It follows the readings from Scripture assigned for each day of the year. Special attention is given to the Feast Days and the Fasting seasons. Each year, DYNAMIS focuses on one portion of the three major sections of the Bible: for background - the Septuagint version of the Old Testament, then on the Apostolic writings such as Acts and the Epistles, and most important, the Four Gospels.

During 2007 the meditations focus on portions of the Old Testament. Meditations on the Gospels will follow in 2008. A Minute with DYNAMIS will briefly summarize an entire but short daily meditation and direct listeners to its website where these complete meditations are available. DYNAMIS is published by David Patton, a Reader of the Wichita Cathedral, with editorial input from David Jasmer of Assumption Orthodox Church in Scottsdale Arizona, and Joshua Sturgill and Meg Patton of St. George Cathedral.

A Minute with DYNAMIS is recorded and offered by Jay Jones and Sandra Kopoev of the Wichita Cathedral. OCN is proud to be partnering with the St. George Cathedral to offer this vital spiritual inspiration to faithful and seeker alike.

Another program being developed is Light from the Hill, a weekly program originating from the campus of Hellenic College/Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology that will feature special messages from renowned speakers from all over the Orthodox Christian world who visit and speak at the campus, interviews with faculty and staff about the importance of an Orthodox Christian centered education, and reflections from students about life at an Orthodox Christian College and Seminary.

OCN is committed to brining you some of the finest Orthodox teaching programs available to assist you in learning about our faith and giving you the tools you need to articulate our faith to others. We will use the most up to date technology available to us to minister the life-changing and timeless message of Orthodox Christianity to an ever growing and spiritually hungry world.

Orthodox Christian Network (OCN), is an agency of SCOBA, the Standing Conference of Canonical Orthodox Bishops in the Americas, and develops effective ways to use modern media to raise awareness of our Orthodox faith in the minds of the general population and to be an "assistant" to local parish priests in keeping our faithful attached to the Church between worship services. OCN produces the nationally syndicated radio program Come Receive The Light and the 24 hour internet based radio ministries of The Ark and The Rudder. For more information, go to
