Anti-War Conversation

Compass #39: Linda takes the Compass microphone to an Anti-War rally in Downtown L.A., for a thought provoking conversation with Fr. Vazken. They discuss peace and war, love and violence, as the US contemplates military action, i.e., war, in Syria. What are the boundaries of contemplation and analysis? How can Love be a realistic answer to war? As they discuss, their conversation is interrupted with some ethnic concerns (Armenian) which fuels a new conversation with brushes with Animal House and Coney Island! A look at human responsibility. Where would Jesus be today? (Who would Jesus bomb?)

Women & Church: Stalled or Starting?

Reading the Gospel during the Divine Liturgy
Compass 35:  Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg says the Women's movement has stalled. Linda Zadoian asks why it hasn't even started in the Church? Some candid conversation about women, work, the Church and services. Fr. Vazken reflects first women ordained in America. Also - experiences from the first few months of Datev Outreach - Domestic Violence within the community. This is a discussion that goes beyond the usual fair, in Compass tradition - its uncomfortable, but only as a precondition to comfort!

Non-Cents: The Cost of Change

Compass 34: The Eastern Church in a Western world - new revelations come about as Linda probes into the workings of the Church. An important (and sometimes infuriating) conversation with Fr. Vazken. Psychology and healing - is it a grey process or black and white? Finding space to build faith. The friendship of Ghevont & Vartan expressed by the sword and the cross contrasted with the compromise of the religion-market today. Faith "brokering." The Zen of answering needs. How about celebrating life over death?

Pussy Riots and St. Mary on the Same Page

Compass #29: Pussy Riot - a punk band and their prayer to the Virgin Mary. Religious hatred? Would Jesus lend his crucifix and/or His Church for the cause of justice? For peace? Linda Zadoian once again explores dimensions of faith, spirituality and Armodoxy in a dialogue with Fr. Vazken Movsesian. Among topics - Was St. Mary the first feminist? Discovering St. Mary's rebellion in her acceptance of God's invitation. What is the focus of our anger? At God? At religion? Courage and Faith - working hand-in-hand. Believing in yourself to have the Courage to believe in God. And of course, the topic of the week: "legitimate rape" brought to you by the politicians themselves.

A Bridge Over Troubled Waters

Compass #25: This girl wants to know! Can a church have a spiritual and national mission? A bridge is forming across our fears of what has never been before. The discussions are picking up momentum as a series of events and discoveries are unfolding. A journey starts out on the streets which is sparked by everything from WINDOW articles, to the Williams Bay Manifesto to A Call to Excellence to Vahe Oshagan, Krikor Beledian and a near extinct language. Bridges are being built and dots are being connected. The sweetness is in the journey and the process has becomes our means of survival. Plus, critical bodies and the 10 year theory.

Identity through a Cross and a Genocide

Compass #24: This week’s Compass asks questions about making the connection between Genocide commemoration and the Armenian Church.

• What can happen when the foreign concept of “bridge” enters our vocabulary describing the working of the Church?
• Are we marginalizing the Church or making it relevant?
• Can we change the concept of religiosity from freakishness to action?
• Why do politics always win out over the spiritual?
• What happens when community is taken out of the church and God is only wound-up on Sundays?
• Reverend Father Gomidas. How do clergy of the Armenian Church become national figures?
• Is incense the laughing gas of the church?

The bottom line of this episode: The leadership has accepted the marginalization of the church while the people are looking for “the bridge.” Plus we get a glimpse of the beginning of incubation of the Armenian Church. Gestation period begins – is Armodoxy the product of in vitro fertilization?

The Dishonest Steward speaks to the Disenfranchised

Compass #21: The compass points to a healthy discussion about using the tools (money) of this world to do the work of the church. "Men go wild in the Armenian Church" as Fr. Vazken joins Linda in focusing on the dishonest steward - the guy who rips off his boss twice, only to be commended and pointed to by Christ. Discussion topics include the disenfranchised members of the community, life cycles and returning to the church, stadium/mega churches, stewardship, shrewdness vs. the rascal, business and religion and the ultimate question: is there "clean" money? Down to earth conversation - and the compass points the way.

Compass #19: The Lenten season is off to a start as discussions head back to the basics. Scaling back the excesses, focusing on God through an inward prayer life and giving to those who cannot give back may be the real spice of life.

Domestic Violence & the Church

Gregory Beylerian's icon depicting mother and child, titled "Violence Hurts; Love Conquers" is unveiled and explained. It will serve as the cornerstone of the Domestic Violence walk during the week.

Cleaning up religious and relationship clutter

Compass #16: The dialogue continues into what is the essence of the Christian Orthodox faith. With the clutter gone, things start to purge. What about relationships and friendships? Learning to shake off the stuff that sticks to the soul and letting the light shine through the dull films of toxic relationships. And then... cleaning up the clutter of myths in religion only to find flies and mosquitoes bother us but support ecosystems. As always, Compass goes beyond the usual rhetoric, and even questions the PC of Jesus/Christian bashing.

Catatonic Mumbo-Jumbo

Compass #10: The tendency to fill emptiness with "stuff" extends to the church as well. The problem of relevance (or irrelevance) for the ancient Armenian Church is expounded inadvertently by an elitist blog. The compass leads the conversation to nakedness and burqa-dress praying, as a new generation opts for superficiality rather than a hard look at Christ's teachings in a world plagued by hunger, disease and genocide. Watch out! Without a compass you're sure to fall into the post-Thanksgiving consumerfest. Fr. Vazken returns as this week's guest to ride out the compass-wave.

Losing Ego through the Divine Liturgy

Compass #6: Continuing on the discussion of making the Divine Liturgy relevant for today, Linda Zadoian spins the compass to worship. Here the discussion goes into ego and its loss during worship.
