    Beware of Greeks Bearing Bonds

    What to make of this article... http://www.vanityfair.com/business/features/2010/10/greeks-bearing-bonds-201010 After an hour on a plane, two in a taxi, three on a decrepit ferry, and then four more on buses driven madly along the tops of sheer cliffs by Greeks on cell phones, I rolled up to...

    Prayers for our trip

    Hey folks.  As many know, I'm in the process of relocating back to Canada and I'm doing the trip in three parts.  The first drive was the entire family, which went off without a hitch, thank God.  We settled the kids in with my parents, stayed in Toronto for a couple of days and came back to NJ...

    Serbian Orthodox Church faces key decision

    OL, Keep in mind that whatever you may have read, may have been put in print for a specific purpose (ie: creating divisions between parties that don't exist in reality). I cannot imagine the EP or the Church of Greece willfully wanting to break communion with us.  Would it be the first time we...

    Serbian Orthodox Church faces key decision

    Brate, I'm not exactly sure of the process to elect Patriarch Pavle's predecessor.  I read recently that the Synod pick 3 or 4 candidates and essentially "pick from a hat".  Is that true or is their voting or any reliable articles outlining the process. Maybe Serb1389 knows the process if you...

    Serbian Orthodox Church faces key decision

    Well, I put this into the religious section to avoid "liberal crackhead" type comments so I suppose I'll let the mods handle it they way they see fit, as the appropriate response would be to state the obvious regarding Kosovo recognition. The fact is, Serbia and the SOC is under attack, by whom...

    A disturbing trend among Orthodox Christians

    Well, I've highlighted this point only because I think this is the point where "western" Orthodox Christians get a pass (as compared to ethnic Orthodox).  First, it is a simple case of semantics, which makes a big difference in practice.  You say that you probably go over board with "patriotism"...

    Something for the "Green" Patriarch to Ponder...

    Just another attempt by a psycho liberal the enslave us with socialism! LOL Actually I totally agree and it is interesting to see the same polarization happen in Canada.  It's as though the politicians can't think on their own, so they use the US playbook, which is then absorbed by the masses.

    Something for the "Green" Patriarch to Ponder...

    Listen, I'd much rather the Synod assemble an army and try to take back Constantinople, but that ain't gonna happen any time soon, so I don't see anything wrong with some good old fashioned tree hugging.
