    Seeking blueprints for an Analogion

    I've been wanting to get a podium for my prayer corner so I don't have to keep holding the heavy books but most of them are to short or to expensive. The analogions that some priests use are the perfect height however it's a mystery where churches find these things because I can't find them...

    Fr Joachim Parr not who he says he is, has spent years lying about his past

    Firstly I just want to say I am not one to judge. The action of this priest are in the hands of his bishop and God. I am simply posting this information so others can be made aware.

    Hard year

    Just asking for prayers. I've been having a pretty rough year. This year I turned 30, I've been trying to join a monastery since I was 25 and still no luck.

I've been using the NKJV because a priest i know says it's the closest to the Greek but my spiritual father suggested I get the KJV. Is the 1611 KJV good?
