Serge, this is rich and full of humor in places too.  Much of Bishop +SERAPHIM's sparkling personality comes through too.  Thanks for this post.

For those not in the "know," His Grace, +SERAPHIM [Sigrist] served as Bishop of Sendai and East Japan until the Autonomous Japanese Orthodox Church was able to elect a native Japanese to fill the office.

Thank-you for the link, Serge.  He certainly is very "human" and seems quite accessable.  It was very interesting reading.

Very much so.  Thanks for bumping this.

The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...
