"Fountain of Grace" Upcoming TV Program

Air date: December 7/8, 2019
Brief description: John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ, preached repentance in the wilderness. He ate locusts and wild honey. Some Bible scholars think that “locusts” could also refer to some kind of bean. Adapting from a famous Malaysian dish, our version of the “Fabulous Four from Sabah” includes sweet peas as well as fried dried fish mixed with honey to imitate the feel of eating locusts.

During Advent, we prepare our hearts in anticipation of the birth of Baby Jesus, but also for the second coming of Christ in glory. "Prep for Christmas" takes you to an orthodox monastery in Greece for a close look at a painting of the General Judgment, which prompts us to reflect on the causal relationship between every decision of ours and our eternal destiny.
