Archbishop Vincent Waterman: Shepherd and sentinel at Whitney Pier’s African Orthodox Church


Quote
“Look at life as a gift to you. When you were born, you didn’t know what colour you were going to be. So whatever colour you are, enjoy it. And when the ride is over say: ‘Hey, I made it.’
 
“We’re not asking you to join. We’re just asking you to attend our service. And if you care to come back, you’re welcome with open arms.”

Waterman, who was the first black gas meter reader in 1957 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City, has always sought challenges and taken them on fearlessly. He was told black people couldn’t be trusted to read meters, yet he took on that job and rose through the ranks to become an inspector for the Brooklyn Union Gas Co.

After being ordained, Waterman made regular visits to New York’s infamous Rikers Island jail, where his philosophy and counselling helped hardened prisoners understand they had value in life, he said.
 
As a meter reader, Waterman had many doors slammed in his face. As a prison counsellor, he dealt with murderers.
 
Even though he has faced a lot of adversity and danger, at 89 he remains true to his faith.
 
“The thing of it is, I believe in God,” he said. “He called me to do more than just eat.”

At this point I'm comfortable enough with my sexuality...I mean Orthodoxy...that I try to correct misconceptions. If someone is insulting the Church, I get very combative, especially if someone is bad mouthing the Virgin Mary or calling us idolaters.

Every Orthodox church, sadly, has images within it which are uncanonical. Your post simply proves that mistakes in what is hung or painted in Orthodox churches continue to be made. It bears repeating that the mere presence of such images in churches does not automatically mean they are suitable for veneration.

What is the position of the Orthodox Church on the veneration of this image?

Is the Guadalupe image venerated as an Icon by Orthodox believers in Mexico?

Although it is depicted in the Antiochian monastery of St. Anthony the Great in Mexico, I'm not sure that it is actually venerated as an icon by the Orthodox there.

In addition to the above mentioned links, here are photos of other Orthodox parishes in Mexico which have an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe:

After 231 years, even Americans don't really care about the American Revolution.  July 4 is just a picnic and fireworks day.  Heck, even Danes celebrate it.

Is all fantasy bad?
No. Phantasia is a form of escapism, and is not the same as what we call fantasy/imagination today.
Does it have to do with imagining yourself to be a lot holier than you are?

Okay, marrying yourself makes no sense. You already live with yourself 24/7!!  laugh

Cohabitation before marriage is a sin. 

Cue the progressive movement within the various "churches" to legitimize auto-eroticism so long as it's within the loving confines of yourself and yourself.

It's not really a "progressive movement", at least not in the USA. Have you read what James Dobson said about it? For many evangelicals, if the Bible doesn't explicitly condemn it, it must be okay.

Actually, yeah. Not just Dobson, but Tim LaHaye (of Left Behind infamy) back in the late '70s/early '80s published a "Christian" sex manual with his wife where he, if not encouraged, at least condoned the practice.
