I joined the above OrthodoxChristianity.net group in a fruitless attempt to save the remaining 3/4 of my soul.

I resurrected this old thread just to share that with you.  :-\

I think I found my priest on facebook!!
My Metropolitan's assistant bishop is on there. That's why I joined. The secretary of our Holy Synod is also on there.

I noticed you can become a fan of lots of different things.
Do you know of any great saints (with pages on facebook made for them) to become a "fan" of?

...And it seems like our very own Fr. Anastasios is facebook pals with my priest.

New conspiracy theories are forming in my head.

I went to seminary with him. He's a great guy. However, he would most assuredly not agree with me on many points!

"Seminary" pah! How boring. There ends my fantastic conspiracy theories involving the ILLUMINATI, Abraham Lincoln and John Cleese.  ;D

Nice to hear you are getting along though :angel:.

When you get to 40 something, you'll appreciate any way of tracking down long lost friends!
I'll second that, even though I have 5 years yet before I reach 40 something.  ;)

I've been tracking down a bunch of old friends from high school and college using Facebook!

Who knows?  Facebook might even be a good tool for job search networking.  Anything helps in the current economy.

I finally got a facebook account. I had a myspace account a long time ago but abandoned it when that place went to spam hell. I'll start adding people when I get home. For some reason my government computer will not let me log on there!  ;D

Fr. Chad Hatfield (along with Dn. Kirill Sokolov) visited for Vespers last week and Fr. Chad gave a talk afterward.  When talking about St. Vlad's (of course), he mentioned modern challenges, such as working with technology.  One of the things was that he wasn't allowed to only e-mail now, but to have a Facebook account so he can communicate better with other Orthodox.  Since I have only been on for a few weeks myself, this echoed with me.  Fr Dn Kirill spoke on this some too.

I do not have facebook, twitter, myspace or anything else considered social networking.  I am the greater dinosaur.  ;D
