The webinar—available at no cost to participants—is being made available by the Center for Family Care of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America.  Clergy and their wives may register to participate on-line here.

Facilitating the webinar will be Deacon Dr. Stephen Muse, who will address the spiritual roots, signs and symptoms of compassion, fatigue and burnout and suggest safeguards to prevent the conditions that are common to those in ministry and their families.

“The expertise of Deacon Stephen will be known to many, both from his previous presentations to the Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America and his recently published books, When Hearts Become Flame and Being Bread, published by Saint Tikhon’s Monastery Press,” said Priest Nathan Preston, Administrator of the OCA’s Department of Pastoral Life.

Deacon Stephen also conducts the week-long “Clergy-in-Kairos” wellness program for clergy and clergy couples at the Pastoral Institute in Columbus, GA.

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.
