Happy 5th Birthday, OC.net!
« on: October 03, 2007, 04:41:43 PM »
5 years ago today byzantines.org was resurrected as OC.net.  Now, 170,000+ posts and 2,000+ members later, we're able to celebrate 5 years of the forum.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

If only.  It would be interesting to see what has changed since Oct 2002...

Many years!
