Well I am chrismated now woohoo!
« on: November 29, 2006, 01:30:57 AM »
Hey hey I got chrismated nov 20 like I said I would be on my first post. Everything went great it felt so good to be coming home to the true church. Everyone at my parish is very friendly we had a big dinner in the church basement afterwords and it was just great. I am really looking foreward to the future.

God bless Edmund

P.S. sorry it took so long to reply I was out of town due to turkey day :)

Axios!
Congratulations!
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Well, it took me something like 12 years to figure out that Orthodoxy was the place to be, so it warms my heart every time I see that someone else has come home (and especially when they weren't as stubborn as I was).  So, welcome home!

I don't know about 'welcoming home' the new people.  They're the Newly Illumined - I'll give 'em that.  I wish I was that bright.

God grant you many years, Edumund and Stosh.
