    Brothers and sisters (this is third time I've typed that out here today!), Please remember my mother Evelyn in your prayers. After 20 years of being cancer free, it appears that ugly monster has reared its ugly head again. She's had all the tests and we are currently just waiting for her...

    for the repose of the soul of Jim

    Friends, In what has become an all too common occurrence in my life, an acquaintance has been gunned down in the prime of his life in what appears to be a senseless crime.  What makes this even more upsetting is that he spent the past few years getting healthy after a serious liver issue due to...

    Interesting baptism by Patriarch Ilya of Georgia

    A friend of mine posted this on facebook asking if this was normal practice in the Orthodox church.  I told him no but maybe it was a peculiarity of the Georgian church.  What concerns me is that these children are not being fully immersed. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFGHerqhSC8...

    Difficult but necessary decision

    Brothers and sisters in Christ, There is a decision affecting a very long time relationship that I must make sooner rather than later (before you ask, not my wife, we're just fine, thanks) and it will affect more than just the personal relationship I have with this particular person and will...
