If You Did That Spring Forward Thing, Fall Back Tonight!
« on: October 27, 2002, 02:15:02 AM »
Glory to Jesus Christ!

Those of you who live in a municipality that celebrates(?) Daylight Savings Time, make sure you set your clock back an hour tonight and get an extra hour of sleep before the Divine Liturgy in the morning. God Bless

-From the guy that secretly hopes the people constantly late for the Liturgy forget about that whole clock setting thing and get to church either early or on time for once! :D

Don't know about everyone else's parishes,  but most of those who are always late around here remembered to change their clocks and arrived at their usual time  :-[  I hope others had a better result.

We put a large notice on the Church doors, but surprisingly attendance was bigger than normal.
"Never let anyone try to tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was fully Orthodox for a thousand years; and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."

I say about 20% of the elder Ukrainians forgot to change the clocks and came in during announcements  ;D
