The ancient faith is that of the Orthodox Church. Continuing that faith is a problem facing its multi-national members living in North America since the late eighteenth century. Specifically the problem centers on a single parish in Berkley, Michigan where second and third generation descendants of Middle Eastern immigrants are losing interest in the church and the cultural heritage of their parents. Orthodox Church development in North America, the Middle Eastern migration, problems of settlement, and adjusting to the American culture contribute to several images that trouble the parish but also provide insights into strategies for continuing the ancient faith.
