Our One Year Anniversary!
« on: May 12, 2003, 12:09:03 PM »
Dear Friends,

One year ago today, we founded byzantines.org, which later became OrthodoxChristianity.net!

Now I know it may not seem like it's the same board, especially since during Bobby's temporary move to Italy the files got lost and we had to start from scratch in October, but you the community is the same (although greatly expanded) and we are joyous of that! (I still hope that someday we can get some of those old threads back but it would require manual typing in a 20 megabyte database file, and Bobby would have to make sure the files even still exist on one of his hardrives where they were "last seen." ;-)

Let's keep growing in the next year to come and hopefully by May 12, 2004 we will have 350-400 members and 4-5000 posts a month!

In Christ,

anastasios, Bobby, Phil, David, and Nik

Happy anniversary!

I wish I had been here for the start, but I am glad that I am here now at least. You guys have done a great thing here. God has used it to bless us all.

Say, on a side note: how does one get from here to "the Store"? Is there a convenient link? It's probably right under my nose, but I don't see it.
The first condition of salvation is to keep the norm of the true faith and in no way to deviate from the established doctrine of the Fathers.

Umm Bobby has not added the link back to the store, but it is on the front page and on the portal page! :D

But in the meantime, the store is at http://www.cafeshops.com/OrthodoxChrist/

Bobby deleted the links by accident.

Please go to www.orthodoxchristianity.net (the front page, which we will update soon to a new, crisp look) and find the links to other pages there.

Thanks!

I haven't been around for the entire year, but it's great to have OC.net as my "home" on the net.  Hopefully things will just get better and better.
