I know three people who look exactly like you and they all listen to metal, like fantasty books and play warhammer. It was a guess.
Did used to read a lot of fantasy books as well (Conan, Tolkien, Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, etc.), but Warhammer 40k or Warhammer Fantasy?

I have a 40k Tyranid army in the works. :D

Have you lost weight, trevor? You look good/happy there :)
I lost a little over 40 lbs. this summer, thanks for noticing. :)  I'm so much happier.  My parents are finally getting along, I'm losing weight, on my way to university, and now it looks like I'm going back to Church.  I couldn't be happier with the way my life is going.
Wow this is great.

Imagine a sorrowful sinner, that is what I look like.

We all look like that brother. Take hope in the unfailing mercy of God. His love is most profoundly evident in our weaknesses and sins. I would not know the light if I had never experienced the darkness. And even after knowing the light, I still choose darkness. Sometimes I can't pull myself out of the depths. But the Cross always lifts me up. I keep waiting for God to turn His back on me. After all, I've turned my back on Him too many times to count. But my sins can no more thwart His love than a fly can obfuscate the sun.

Nephi, I think you like metal  :)
To be honest I really used to during my teen years, but I never listen to it anymore.

And relevantly enough it was mostly an eclectic mix of different European metal bands.

If I see a man with a ponytail, I know he probably like metal music or he's an Orthodox (or both of them).

Very nice picture, you and your wife look very happy :)

A "little" crush?  I think that he is having an Icon painted of her.  And yes, he looks Nordic.



ps - he will get me back for this.



I am Swedish except for a Norwegian great-grandfather and an English great-grandmother.  I was drinking Linie Aquavit and eating gravlax that evening. 

So it explains your not so obvious American citizenship and why I liked the picture. Yeah, it confirms that Scandinavians are my type of man (I mean appearance of course)
Vamrat was having a little crush on you. I hope he's Scandinavian.

I had to find the meaning of the expression "have a crush on somebody" ;) Never before have seen/heard it. But, please, no icon, it would be a schlock one ;) And I'm sure you poverrate Vamrat's feelings toward me ;)
Punch has posted pictures from the Christmas Even in which Vamrat is present too, and as I could notice, he's definitely blond, so that's good  ;D

No, I just prefer blond men, but there are some men with black hair and dark eyes that I really consider as good-looking.

But there was no man without beard that was attractive for me (I don't count the times of primary school of course ;)) Yeah, beard is more important than hair's colour .


BTW, You look very good in the picture (I mean your avatar) ;)

As an aside, is smiling in pictures becoming more common in Europe?

This is me, Fr. Jacob (left) and Fr. Chris (right) back in May when I became a catechumen.

For those who havent heard, Fr. Jacob passed away yesterday. Pray for him, his family and our parish as this is certainly a difficult time.

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

This is me and my friends at a Christmas party in 2011. I'm the guy in the back at the far right.



This is me when I was Baptised on June 23rd, 2012. The Priest holding the Gospel over me is Fr. Michael, the other one is Fr. George. The old couple to the far right are also converts, they were made catechumens the day after I was baptized and were just received about two months ago. The little boy to the far right sitting down bored is my brother.

...Or it's just possible he's a mouthy young man on an internet forum.
In the infinite wisdom of God, James can be all three.

Nice garment James.

+1 As first Christians.
I wonder why yoyr brother, James, was so bored. I think it's interesting to see your sibiling during so strange ceremony ;)


Timon - very nice picture too. And memory eternal for fr. Jacob!

I don't have any pictures from my Chrismation, althoguh I had a camera with me. Maybe sometimes I regret that I didn't ask my friend to take a few pictures of it (mainly when I see photos posted here or on fb), but I thought I should have it "inside me", in my mind, hear and memories. The best souvenir of my receiving me into Orthodox Church I have it's the icon I was given by my priest and the candle I was keeping during the Chrismation.
