The Agony and the Ecstasy - The Church in America

I came across this informal, but incredibly informative talk by Fr. Thomas Hopko on the All Saints of Alaska website. It is on the history and experience of Orthodoxy in North America since the beginning of the Russian mission in 1794. Fr. Tom gave this talk about two years ago when he was in Victoria, and you get a real sense from him for his deep personal embodiment of the experience, suffering, chaos - as well as joy and mission of the Church. You can here it in his voice. You can listen to it online here.
