    What is everyone reading?

    "Compassion: A Reflection on the Christian Life" by Fr. Henri Nouwen Although this is book was written by Roman Catholic priests, it is very good. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

    The Monastery: Mr Vig and the Nun-Documentary

    I saw this film a year or so ago. It wasn't especially entertaining in my opinion, but it was interesting to see how the monastery got started. It was worth a watch. The documentary took place in Denmark. The scenery was beautiful.

    Feeling changed

    Congratulations mctaviix! I am a convert to the Orthodox church as well. When my wife & I became catechumens, I did not expect anything spiritually significant to happen; however, after the priest blew on us, I felt the grace of the Holy Spirit really strongly for several days. I feel this...

    Chuck Norris

    Here's a new one. Little known medical fact: Chuck Norris invented the Cesarean section when he roundhouse-kicked his way out of his mother's womb.

    U2 360 Tour

    I know U2 tickets are expensive. It's too bad you paid for a show where they were off. I'm a musician as well and can usually pick up on when musicians are off. While I love U2, I have noticed there are certain songs (usually pre-Rattle & Hum era) that when Bono sings now, it just doesn't sound...

    U2 360 Tour

    ^^Like all bands, there are occassional "off nights". Fatigue or an illness can cause that. I have seen U2 4 times in concert & they were magnificant. In my opinion, U2 has one of the best live live sounds I've heard. I like the fact that they don't sound exactly the same as the albums, but...

    U2 360 Tour

    I just saw some videos from the new U2 360 tour. It looks pretty awesome. Unlike their last few tours, this tour is a stadium tour. Their stage is amazing (U2 usually has pretty extravagant stages). It looks like a big metal claw in the middle of the stadium. People can see them from pretty much...

    Has anyone ever met a Starets?

    It is my hope to eventually meet and have a conversation with a startets one day. My priest told me that it is useless trying to conceal your sins from a starets because it is as though you are naked before them. While this prospect seems intimidating to me, I'm sure such a holy man is wise...

    Favorite Movies with a Spiritual Theme

    The Mission and the Green Mile are two of my favorites. I have the soundtrack to the Mission and I never get tired of it. It would be awesome if some Orthodox composers could write some liturgical music that sounds similar to the music in the Mission.
