You were rocking a white suit?

It was more or less an experiment. I wanted to see if it could work.

The second pic worked. Very impressed with the angle, the drink, the brow raise.  You look like one of the characters from the Godfather, I just can't put my finger on him

That explains your avatar  :)
I will continue to label myself Christian, and Anglican, in respect for my baptism. Even though I still struggle with doubts. I don't believe it is fair to dismiss it that easily because of some doubt.

Ladies, please try to avoid falling into the sin of self-abuse because here comes the latest upload of photos from yours truly, JamesR. Now, LBK and Kelly, you lovely young ladies can calm down and relax.

Smoking a cigar.


Processing around my Church.

That's a great compliment, but alas, I can't do female-kind--even after what it did to me via my mother and girls in school--such a grave injustice of not allowing at least one of them to have me.

Huh? What's wrong with black ties? Lack of a jacket and rolled up sleeves while wearing a tie and while not being a journalist from the 40's seems a bit wrong but nothing wrong with tie.

Black ties aren't bad. Plain black neckties are. They're boring and unconventional. Otherwise you can't really go wrong with neckties but plain black is just wrong. Black neckties with stripes or dots are just fine.

Huh? What's wrong with black ties? Lack of a jacket... seems a bit wrong

Perhaps, but that's not too big a sin.

My mother won't buy me a formal jacket. She thinks it's a waste of money since I never go anywhere formal apart from Church. It took me a couple months to finally convince her to get me a tie,  which I'm actually quite thankful for. She picked it btw, not me.

Ah, I see. But then again, last week I bought two dinner suits and a jacket on the market for under $10. Clothes needn't be expensive.

Jackets doesn't need to be formal. You could go to anywhere in an informal jacket.

Second hand? Not that there would be anything wrong with it. Most of my clothes are second hand.

That's great. So traditional and byzantine.


My newest pictures from Serbia:





Two las ones had been taken just before I've seen (and even taken blessing and talked with a bit) Serbian patriarch, so it was really important and great day for me, especially that until that time I'd seen lots of various bishops and Church heads, but not mine ;)

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

It's so nice to get a chance to put a face on some of you!

Dominika, you seem very put-together and I'm glad you enjoyed a blessed visit with your patriarch.

Liza, you look just like your avatar! ;) Really what a cheerful picture.
One hides amid pornography, angry music, television that shows the worst of mankind, misanthropic politics, an internet populace led by all the passions: and then one asks, "Where is God?"

It's like see Vikings raiding land for treasures, except it's children on an ice cream truck  ;D

LOL!  It's the sunglasses!  I didn't even notice!

I special "order" the icecream truck on the final day of VBS, each year.  The company owner and drivers are all American Veterans.

Reading during matins this morning. Awesome acoustics in this tiny side church. This congregation's first church that probably holds 30 people. They have a new one that is much larger. I like this one more though. No tv's, screens, or microphones. Just books and acoustics.
