I met TheTrisagion on Sunday and it was just about what I expected.

I've seen Mina Soliman do it in person.  It's kinda scary.

Updated my faith/jurisdiction info too.

Best thing would be to crop out the cardinal. Crop like it's 1054.

Updated my faith/jurisdiction info too.

Nice.

Whenever I see a social media post that begins with, "Most people won't read past..." I think to myself, "You're damn right," and keep scrolling.
