Michael Jackson is dead.
And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers?
We shall bring myrrh and spices to his tomb.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

“In essentials, unity; in nonessentials, liberty; in all things, charity.”  Who said this first? 
I've always shortened it in my mind to "in essentials, unity; in nonessentials, charity."    :)
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

Found this.
Quote
Like me, you’ve probably heard some variation of the phrase, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” It’s a translation of the Latin phrase, “In necessariis unitas, in dubitas libertas, in omnibus caritas.” Nineteenth-century church historian Philip Schaff calls it “the watchword of Christian peacemakers.”(1) The phrase is often attributed to the theologian St Augustine of Hippo (354-430),(2) but it sounds foreign to his style and is not found in his extant writings.(3)

Is it still suitably Orthodox in sentiment (assuming one is defining essentials according to the Church)?

All I know is that I first heard it among Southern Baptists, but I'm 97.6942% sure they were referring only to other Baptists.

Have you ever tried butterfat cookies? They're amazing. I can send you a recipe inbox. You can use cream cheese instead of pure butterfat.

I've been to Social Media (specifically the one with the bird). It's a dump.

Though I'm not sure my returning here will be any good for my soul either.

Today I (re)learned that saints Gregory of Nyssa and Gregory the Theologian are not the same Gregory.  One day, it will stick.

Once the church is open, I want to buy a small icon of St, Gregory the Wonderworker. My brother was named after him.

I always thought St. Gregory Dialogus was the big "namesake" in the West. Was your brother named after the day he was born or something?

My Mom followed the old RCC tradition of naming the baby after whatever saint's day they were born on.

My brother was born November 17, therefore, was named Gregory. :)

Apparently you can develop film with instant coffee, vitamin C powder, and washing soda.  :o Possibly iodized salt as the "fixer" step.
