Where is God in my life? How can He guide me? Why do I feel miserable we He is always around? How can I find my own way?
Every week, Father Andreas was helping people to find answer to these (and many other) questions in his radio programme "Unseen Crossings" at the Radio Station Church of Piraeus. His simple, personal yet always admirably wise approach made his broadcast highly succesful and beloved in his country.
This book is a compilation of Father Andreas Koanos' popular radio talks about about belief, God, happiness and finding our own place in the world and inner strenght to deal with our increasingly complex life – first time available for the English speaking brothers and sisters.
“You always deserve your self-worth. And you deserve it because you are a creature of God, His creation. Because God loves you and the whole heaven watches over you, takes care of you and gives you importance. Even if no one calls you on the phone for a whole day, even if no one speaks to you, there is a tremendous power inside you. You have value and personality. You are a unique being and there is no one like you anywhere on earth. No one is like you, no one has your traits, your gifts and talents, but on the other hand, no one has your problems, your peculiarities and your character in general. You are who you are and you have your own value. Jesus loves you and gives you importance. He wants to strengthen you.”
The proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated for the completion of the Church of “Panagia Galaxa, Thalassokratousa”.
