    What is everyone reading?

    The Children of Hurin is going quite well. :) I'm working my way through it slowly, however it *is* more readable than the Silmarillion, in that it focuses on one single tale with a small handful of main characters, and so is more localized in that respect. I love the Silmarillion, but my...

    What is everyone reading?

    I am reading this as well. I just got through the section on prayer -- I found it most enlightening and practical in many ways, which is something I often need when being instructed on prayer. Also reading: Les Miserables by Victor Hugo Saint Innocent Apostle to America by Paul D. Garrett...

    Random Postings

    Can you elaborate on this? I have never heard of them -- is this an organization? (Since I plan to pursue my teacher certification in K-12 library science so that I can work in school libraries, this could affect me some day soon) :)

    Feasting Recipes

    Wonderful, thanks for the explanation! What you described was exactly what I was worried about -- I don't want to call it a Greek version of Paskha and then have to explain where that idea came from! I'll just say it's a Greek recipe and leave it at that -- assuming I can find the time on Pascha...

    Feasting Recipes

    Tamara (and anyone else who can offer the following information), So, I am relatively new to Orthodoxy as well as the ethnic traditions (cooking and otherwise) that often go with it, this year being my second Pascha as a member of the Church. The Greek Molded Honey Cheesecake actually sounds...

    Boys....gotta love 'em!

    Speaking of combustible household substances, wanna hear what a boy once taught me? As 11 year-olds, a friend and I used to have play-dates, and when I'd go to his house, he used to take his dad's WD-40 out of the garage and over to his driveway (away from anything that might catch fire), and...

    Adjusting the Message- How Far Should We Go?

    That's a really good idea, to use the icon of the Creation as a learning tool while missioning in traditional cultures...I think even the iconographic depiction of the outdoors and nature, and the fact that God (i.e. Christ depicted in the icon) plays a direct and integral role in its (nature's)...
