This program of mystagogy is hosted by the Adult Faith Programs at Saint Stephen Martyr Church in Chesapeake, Virginia.
Hello and welcome to the Mystagogy podcast, offered as part of the Adult Faith Programs at Saint Stephen Martyr Church in Chesapeake, VA.
In a tradition dating back to the earliest centuries of Christianity, newly initiated believers were prepared for ongoing lives of faith through mystagogy, a period of formation designed to deepen their spiritual, liturgical and community life. Mystagogy is a Greek word which means "leading through the mysteries."
This program is being developed and taught by Barbara Nicolosi Harrington, a university professor of screenwriting, cinema, Great Books and theology.
Today's episode is the second of two presentations on The Hound of Heaven by Francis Thompson.
Thanks for joining us for this episode of the Mystagogy podcast.
The music for the podcast is provided by George Sarah. You can learn more about George and his music via a link in the show notes.
Until next time, be well and God bless.
