Nektarios would be proud of me!
At a meeting of the Blue Mountains Greek Community Association last night, the discussion came up again about establishing an Orthodox Parish here in the Blue Mountains, as we only have a Monastery, and therefore cannot have our Christenings, Baptisms, Funerals, etc up here.
The main problem is that there are not enough Greek families to support a Greek Orthodox Church.
Then I piped up, and said: "What if it was an English Speaking Parish? Couldn't we then get support from Orthodox Residents of the Blue Mountains who are not Greek?"
I could hardly believe that I was saying it! I must have been speaking in tongues!
The proposal was passed, and today we submitted an ad in the local paper requesting expressions of interest, and posted one on The Orthodox Billabong.
