So I was right about misunderstanding her. The apocrypha is scripture to us and only Protestants use the term when referring to the books removed by Martin Luther. But to us, it is just Old Testament.

I had some Krispy Kreme brewed coffee the other day and it was tasty.

The news reporter said that virgin passengers are stranded at JFK.  How rude to reveal that!  As if people have to know they're virgins.

I think it comes down to this.

As it has been said before, man was made to be in union with God. After the fall we developed a hole, an emptiness, and ever since then we've have tried to fill it. Some with money, others with gadgets, women often with clothes or similar things, men with sports or gangs and so on.

And then you have sin. Coupled with the need to feel complete, part of something larger and you get the mess you describe in your OP.

Competition, be it in sports or in other spheres of life, reeks of Darwinian rhetoric. It has been the root cause of much evil in this world.

Christ says, help/liftup/sharewith your neighbour

but WE say, let the best man win!

Does anyone know if the Coptic Orthodox have just issued some ruling on the adoption of children? Some are saying it has been banned, but this can surely only apply in Egypt based on specific circumstances there?

Beer is yummier.

Doctors say a beer a day helps fight against kidney stones. Trust me, those are not fun.

It's true.  And unfiltered beer has the yeast, also healthy to drink with lots of B vitamins.

Right now, though, I am drinking water with chia seeds.

I notice that in evangelical/protestant culture, when persecution is discussed, christianity is treated in generalistic terms, evangelicals usually imagine that those persecuted christians in ME are protestant new converts from Islam, not a 2 thousand year old community of antiochian orthodox, or maronites, copts or syriac.

Numbers 6:5

Original text:

"All the days of the vow of his separation there shall no razor come upon his head: until the days be fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the Lord, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow. "

...43 translations later, Yandex gives us:

"Today, junk tel Aviv,who decided to pay for shaving my head, what happened when, in this country,I, the Lord, the whole world, what it looks like."

Anyone here roast their own coffee beans at home?  If so, have you tried it with an air popcorn popper?
http://www.sweetmarias.com/airpop/airpopmethod.php

There is a guy in my parish who roasts beans he gets from sweetmarias. We sell it during each long fasting period to raise money. Excellent stuff.

You know you have walked into the right Church when they serve french pressed, home roasted, single origin coffee. 

I am envious.
