    Prayers for my new company and employment

    Hello everyone. I just launched a new video game company. We went live with our Kickstarter yesterday. I'd appreciate prayers that we reach our funding level. Also, since this new company won't be paying the bills for quite a while, I'd also appreciate prayers about a job offer I received...

    The Avengers Movie (Minor Spoilers) / Anyone else...

    Seen "The Avengers"? Went to midnight showing last night. I thought it was very well done, Whedon's script and directing were excellent, etc, etc. Still a little unsure about Mark Ruffalo's Banner. Better than Bana, but I think Norton had it topped.

    Fasting and the Worst In People

    From a line of thought that started here:http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,43563.msg720976/topicseen.html#msg720976 Not really. Just from what I've managed to learn so far (and of course I welcome correction from the many on this board who have been Orthodox and/or...

    No! No Sleep! 'Til Next Year!!!

    Anyone else ever find that despite your desire not to ring in the New Year; to turn in early, its just not possible. Country living would sound really good right now if I had a car.

    Returning to college

    I decided about two weeks ago to return to school. One application later I got sucked into a whirlwind of FAFSA paperwork, hunting down high school transcripts (still not completely done yet, my freshman year records are completely missing and the school I graduated from had some drama that...

    Church attendance

    I have been unable to attend church for the past couple of weeks and won't be able to go to Liturgy this morning, either.  It is somewhat depressing, there is no place I'd rather be than in the presence of my Lord and fellow Christians, but my current lack of job and transportation is keeping me...

    Well, looks like my time in the frozen northern wastes has come to an end.  I will be moving to Georgia in the morning.  I've really got no idea what idea what I will be doing when I get there, but I feel it's finally time to patch some things up with my family, and the location will be the more...

    Does anyone have an Inkling?

    I was originally going to title this "Yet Another CS Lewis Thread", but decided to broaden my horizons. Anyone who has read my posts should by this point realize I have a love for Lewis and Tolkien, which upon reviewing some of the past threads I see more than a few share.  Rather than...

    Can anyone recommend...

    any easily available reading material (i.e. free on the internet/in the library/extremely cheap) in English for one starting out in Orthodoxy?  In the past half year I've gone through the Anti-Nicene/Post-Nicene Church Fathers series, Florovsky's Church Fathers series and Ways of Russian...

    Intro and questions

    Hello all.  Before I get to the questions I'd like to give you a little back story.  My name is Mike, I am close to 30 years old, and it's been twelve years since I regularly attended a church.  I was raised Southern Baptist, and when I say that I don't mean just "accepted Jesus into my heart...
