I'm hoping this is just playful banter.  Otherwise, I'll be locking it.

Well, I DID put a smiley face after my comment. Besides, who would be silly enough to be offended by a comment from a stranger on an internet message board?

I voted "pretty good".  Most times I "love it", but I'm a bit over worked as of late, so I was forced to downgrade my rating.

Considering that the thread title "Job career/satisfaction" it seems that *work* is what the topic is, not EO.

To be fair, while TomS may be on the liberal side, his posistions arn't too far outside the mainstream I have observed in many Orthodox Parishes, I think he's only a radical when it comes to 'Internet Orthodoxy.'

Looking for something else.  And praying I find something soon because I REALLY need a job!

I am happy where I am, or where God seems to want me to be right now.

For the last two years I had looked for another job, but not through prayerfull seeking of God's Will. All the doors I sought to go through were closed; there was one job I really wanted and was qualified for, but the company chose not to interview me.

For whatever reason, God wants me where I am for the time being and so I praise Him for that job He has given me. I am content.

Truly, He is good and loves mankind!

My job is to study Orthodox theology, go to Church, teach a bunch of grad students Ancient Greek, teach a mess of inner-city kids Latin, and edit faculty theological manuscripts for publication. (That makes me a special kind of geek, I suppose, but it still kicks major bootay.)

Even if it's all in fun..this exchange is not in good taste.

Just PM each other with your ribald comments, guys! You'd neither be the first ones, not the last... ;)

I love my job---I am a social worker who is also a Subdeacon in the Antiochian Orthodox Church. In my parish I get to use my skills to develop programs for the catechumen using my interview skills to help direct them in their studies, I help Father with various resources needed to help parishioners needing to interface with hospitals, social agencies, and government entities to get their needs met. I get to publish a 20 page newsletter every month.

I Love my job!

Thomas
