As a Zen Buddhist myself I agree with what you say about the first episode of the programme. The final programme, on the Desert Fathers, was far better than the other two, primarily due to the Presence of Father Lazarus.
As an aside, I use Facebook, which allows any member to establish a group for people with common interests and beliefs. There are numerous Coptic and other Orthodox groups there but as far as I can see, none linked to British-Coptic Orthodoxy. Here is a list of the Coptic sites: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.facebook.com/s.php?q=coptic%20&k=200000010">http://www.facebook.com/s.php?q=coptic%20&k=200000010</a><!-- m -->.
You have to join in order to access the site. My profile is here: <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=602279368">http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=602279368</a><!-- m -->. The reason I mention it is that you are interested in "outreach" and a presence on Facebook would allow you to access a much wider audience, as well as allowing you to upload videos, audio etc. Just a thought. I am currently enjoying reading "Our Daily Life". Wishing you a Happy weekend, Richard
