“Apostles of the Twenty-First Century”

Natalya Mihailova | 14 February 2014

A unique exhibition on the spread of Orthodoxy throughout the world is underway in Yekaterinburg, Russia.

PRAVMIR. February 13, 2014.  With the blessing of Metropolitan Kirill of Yekaterinburg and Verkhoturye, the diocesan missionary department is showing the exhibition “Apostles of the Twenty-First Century” from February 3-16, 2014, in the “Patriarchal Representation” religious education center (Yekaterinburg, 34 Tolmachev Street).  

At the exhibition one can see how Orthodoxy is being spread in the Philippines, India, Mongolia, Pakistan, Thailand, Cambodia, Cote d’Ivoire, Kenya, and other countries. The photographs are accompanied by excerpts from the stories of missionaries and the newly baptized.

The exhibition is also displaying missionary publications in foreign languages and exhibits showing how Christianity is reflected in the culture of non-Orthodox peoples.

One can hear the chanting of Orthodox Africans, see videos of missionary journeys, and chat with missionaries.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
