We’re Family — Unorthodox Podcast — Tablet Magazine


This week on Unorthodox, we are all connected.

Our Gentile of the week is Father Thomas Soroka, an Eastern Orthodox priest from St. Nicholas Orthodox Church in Pittsburgh. He is one of the faith leaders participating in The Tent, Tablet’s month-long project to promote accessibility of faith and interfaith conversation. We talk about what Orthodoxy means to Christians and it illuminates the religious context of the war in Ukraine. You can listen to Father Soroka’s radio broadcasts here.
