I just reread your post, thank you for bringing that to my attention ```

Hello everyone!
Nice to meet you all! I am Romanian Orthodox and very interested in theology, my growth in faith starting since I was a small acolyte. I have been blessed to visit both Athos and Jerusalem, which have helped me grow in my faith. Beside theology, I also like airplanes and bellringing! If anyone knows how to ring Russian bells, I am vey interested on the topic.

As I mentioned in the prayer forum thread, my father-in-law (which I use only for distinction here - he never treated me as less than a son) has entered his eternal reward. As his illness sidetracked him from his very active ministry, he began to make videos about subjects close to him as his illness progressed (and his death approached): https://soulfoodforlife.com/
Britney Spears seems a modern-day Judy Garland or Mickey Rooney, someone that showbiz abused/overworked from a young age so she's crazy.

Swap 'she's crazy' for 'she must be punished for wanting out of the system', and you got something.
I just started to read 'The Witchwood Crown,' by Tad Williams, again. Pretty good so far. Language is a tiny bit purple, but I'm willing to keep trying.
I really need to stop ordering all these books that I see in footnotes, mostly out of fear that they'll be unavailable if I wait to buy them later. On the other hand, experience says that fear is justified ๐Ÿ˜ถ

Hello! :) I saw you made an update/post about codex Alexandrinus and its potential usefulness for a translation from the Book of Psalms, did anything come of that?

Unfortunately I stopped my project. I wish to get back to it anytime, but this could take either months or years... It's to Portuguese, though, and I actually used many sources, the Codex Alexandrinus being just one.

Thanks for your comment. Would it be OK if I emailed you? I just handed in my master's thesis in theology on the Septuagint, and I'd love to ask you some questions regarding Codex Alexandrinus and the published versions of that document, I saw you wrote a bit about that/asked some questions and I'd be curious to see if you found any answers or good sources? :)

True. It's an odd and deliberate choice of the artist to make considering most derivatives of Warner Sallman's Christ at Heart's Door (itself derived from William Holman Hunt's The Light of the World) don't have a doorknob or opener and if they do, they're rather plain; the message being the door is opened from the inside. Adding a hexagram is just weird.
I misattributed the term "ethnocultural triumphalism" in a locked thread to bwallace23350, the thread's creator. Credit goes to Saxon. Thank you!
I believe scripture and the creed. Plus I believe in bishops and that Communion is the true body and blood of Christ, so I'm not a Protestant. That's good enough.

Truth. Have seen 5, and parts of 2 others. Iโ€™m not sure I could handle them now, though.
Huh. Ebay gave me a $15 coupon, and I'm not even sure why. So I got a book out of it and all I had to pay was the .80 cents sales tax.

Ebay do that from time to time, mostly around Christmas. I was given a ยฃ5 code earlier and used it to get the young one's Christmas jumper at half price.

Trying to watch a documentary about Mount Athos on Youtoube, and I got 3 ads (actually the same one repeated) for Tiffany diamonds in like 15 seconds. Weird.

"Could this be a sign?? I've heard of God working in mysterious ways, but does God work through youtube?"

God might be working through videos but I'm pretty sure it's Devil that works through comments.
Orthodoxy is a different ethos - extended family with yiayias/babas, and village life - from Jesuitical and Opus Dei-like semi-secret societies in the secular world.
I voted by provisional ballot on election day... though I just looked and according to the state of PA I didn't vote at all. Very 2020.
