A look back at last year's Halloween episode, and what can happen when we're too concerned with being right.

Be the Bee – We Can’t Talk If We Won’t Listen

When we are too concerned with being right we don’t take the time to listen, to listen to what people have to say, to what important to them, to what they need. So instead of having a real conversation where we talk to each other we start talking at each other or even worse we just start talking to ourselves, for ourselves.

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 -,, and 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.
