New to America? Want to serve newcomers? Curious about the history of Coptic immigration to the U.S.A.? Trying to adapt yourself to your new environment?
Coptic Orthodox Christians have been immigrating to the United States in droves over the last few decades, and their ability to adapt to their new environment has varied greatly.
Bishop Youssef has incorporated years of experience observing and guiding Coptic immigrants into a book that details the history of Copts in the U.S.A., and also provides a comprehensive outlook at how Copts can adequately adapt to their new home. His Grace also shares his vision of the future of Coptic Orthodox Christianity in the land of immigration and how people can fruitfully serve those around them.
This second book in Counseling Series II: Marriage addresses understanding oneself in marriage (commitment in marriage, essential needs and understanding how to satisfy them, forgiveness, competitive and controlling relationships, boundaries, roles of men and women in the Christian family, and many other such topics). The last section contains His Grace's answers to questions asked at the end of several homilies and lectures.
This counseling series is composed of several homilies and lectures by His Grace Bishop Youssef, the Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States, over a period of twenty-eight years (1989-2017). Counseling Series I focused on Raising Children. This Counseling Series II focuses on the topic of Marriage.
Becoming parents is a great blessing, but it is also a great challenge. Anyone who is called to serve the children of God has a significant role in contributing to the spiritual development and wellbeing of the youth. This book is derived from several homilies and lectures by His Grace Bishop Youssef, the Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Diocese of the Southern United States, over a period of twenty-eight years (1989-2017) on the subject of raising children. It is not intended solely for parents, but also for anyone who is called to serve the children of God in any capacity, as well as the youth and adolescents themselves.
