How Christians Can Take Back the Modern Culture by Fr. Joseph Gleason for Russian-Faith
Russia is doing many things right, and we need to learn from them — In 25 years, Russia built over 25,000 churches, they increased their opposition to the LGBT movement, and they made abortion rates plummet. The faith of a nation shapes the destiny of a nation. Here is a way we can contribute . . .
Dear Friends of Russian Faith,
Greetings from Russia!
I want to thank the publisher, Charles Bausman, for his gracious introduction. I have been thankful to accept his offer to serve as editor of Russian Faith.
Taking the reins of this publication is both an incredible blessing, and an enormous responsibility. I owe a debt of gratitude to all the people who put such a tremendous effort into making the Russian Faith website a reality.
I am excited about discussing our vision for the future, but first, it seems fitting to review how much progress has already been made in the past year:
What Has Been Accomplished
Spreading the good news of Christ, and celebrating the revival of Christianity in Russia, well over 700 Russian Faith articles have been published on themes such as:
We have translated many Russian Faith articles into various languages:
We have created transcriptions and English subtitles for:
All these efforts are important contributions in the culture war. A host of forces, both good and bad, are vying for our attention, and for the attention of our children. It is imperative that we clearly teach the timeless truths of the Christian Faith, and we need to do it in a professional way, in multiple languages, via sight, sound, and text. The Russian Faith website is helping make this happen.
What People Are Saying
Russian Faith news stories are being picked up by numerous websites, including LewRockwell, OrthoChristian, Pravmir, Russia Insider, The Right Edition, The Catalog of Good Deeds, The Remnant, and a number of bloggers both home and abroad. Priests are even quoting Russian Faith articles in church bulletins on the local parish level.
We are grateful for the countless kind messages, comments, and emails that we receive from our readers on a regular basis. You, the reader, are the reason why this website exists. I am thankful for your love of Russian Faith, and I ask for your continued prayers.
Our Plans for the Future
We will continue upholding our original mission, telling the amazing story of Christianity’s unprecedented growth and revival in Russia. At a time when Christianity is being viciously attacked in both America and western Europe, and when anti-Russian propaganda is at an all-time high, we believe this is an important story that needs to be told.
