Don't bother him, he's too busy complaining to stop complaining.
Every so often I run across a video on YouTube of a major Coptic liturgy, typically in St. Mark's in Alexandria. And every video I've ever seen was at least three hours in length. I haven't experienced many liturgies in the Eastern Orthodox Church, but three hours is the longest I've ever experienced, and a lot of these Coptic ones run to more like four or five for just an ordination. What are you people doing in all that time?
Don't worry, Neighborino. After the Lands of Immigration Conference kicks in, you'll be able to find Low Church
CopticYankee Doody-E-Oodle Orthodox parishes with 1 hr. 45 min. liturgies tops, and that's including the validating self-help sermon from Abouna Tony Robbins, the worship team's performance during that thing with the bread and wine...you know, um...communion, and the 15 minutes we're supposed to put our heads down and think about Jesus! The best part is, after the service we all get to jam out with our you-know-what's out (guitars) at the Inspiration Station where ice cold Jamba Juice, frappalicious Frappucinno, and a just splash of weekly inspiration are served up by our own worship leaders/baristas just the way you like it. Be there or be square, dude! All you have to lose is your chains!
What would one say about Coptic Good Friday, which takes about 10 hours then?
