"Mouth make trouble, mouth make no trouble." - Sun Tzu

"Guard your steps as you go to the house of God and draw near to listen rather than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know they are doing evil. Do not be hasty in word or impulsive in thought to bring up a matter in the presence of God. For God is in heaven and you are on the earth; therefore let your words be few." - Ecclesiastes (NASB)

I cannot make apostrophe with my wireless keyboard. It is not a problem in Finnish as it is used only in very few instances but it certainly makes English quite complicated. It feels silly write some words without clipping.

So today I donated blood with a large group, one of my friends' friend is a Shiite Muslim and the sheikh went with us to donate too, in tunic, turban and cape. It was the first time I ever felt safe downtown Rio, we got some ugly looks, but no one approached and neither did I expect one to lol

Very nice guys, these Shiites. One of them informed me some of the last malês (Muslim Africans who were brought enslaved to Brazil in the early XIX century and their descendants) are still alive, and he did meet some! I was always curious about their (as I supposed) total disappearance, but it seems they're just small, aged and discreet.

I hate that ialmisry either mispelled certain words or used different renderings, it makes searching for his old posts impossible. :P

I was trying to find his post about the Gospel according to St. Mark and the way it's structured mirrors Holy Week.

A guy I grew up with is part of a Grammy-winning band currently doing a national tour. It's really strange to me that a kid I jammed with a few times is now playing packed venues in major cities, because I don't think of him primarily as a musician, but as the guy doing backflips in the jumpy house for his cousin's birthday party at his grandpa's house.

If you ever apostasized to Islam you could alternatively sign up for a D'jinn membership.

Indeed.  That said, I myself am not a gin afficianado.  Sherry wine is more my sort of drink.

Liturgy of the Entrance of the Theotokos feast at the unique Orthodox parish in Warsaw that has maintaned fully (I mean not only for Nativity or Epiphany) calendar. 1/3 of the people that came were from my parish... Despite the fact that this parish with full new calendar one is very specific, with all Polish in the services (our standard is Church Slavonic) - if it was in Church Slavonic and a bit more reminding our parish (or any typical Polish Orthodox parish) I'd say today's frequention of our parishioners could be much more higher....

Which parish is this?  Are you saying its a parish only used for special feasts like these, or that it is the only Orthodox parish in Warsaw used throughout the year?  Or that its unique in that its a dedicated Polish language parish?

Either way it sounds like a lovely service, even though it would be hypothetically lovelier in Church Slavonic.

No no no. There are 8 Orthodox parishes in Warsaw (plus metropolitan chapel, however I'm not sure if there are regular services; ), 3 of them having their own separate buluding (well, one is in construction), teh rest is loacetd in th bulduing that have also other functions. Rhere are also 2 parishes beyond Warsaw, but in quite close area. Anyway, 3 years ago the metropolitan forced the calendar change to the old one, he allowed to the metropolitan cathedral, my parish and one of these 2 parishs in area close to Warsaw to have some additional services accoridng to the new calendar. Only one parish in Warsaw, that's the qunie using Polish as the liturgical language, is allowed to keep the new calendar. That's a very specific parish in the Polish Orthodox Church (and even if you compare it with other parishes using Polish as a liturgical language), I got used to it 1 year ago, eraleir I'd been going there reluctantly. Still, many active parishioners from my parish, icnluding me, have problems to acept the current situation. So, still, at new calendar Chrsitmas services the church is packed, while on these oens accoridng to the old calendar not so, plus there come people that appear at our parish 1-2 a year, and they're not Polish.
