Please Pray for Jackson, MS...
« on: May 30, 2008, 11:26:53 AM »
...because they know not what lies ahead of them!

Some of you may know this, but I ask for the prayers of all due to the following:

1. Today is my last day as the assistant priest of the Orthodox Cathedral in Birmingham, AL.

2. Effective tomorrow, I will be the priest at the Holy Trinity-St John the Theologian parish in Jackson, MS.

Please pray for the spiritual benefit of the people of my new parish: that the Lord will shine His face towards them, and that they will be patient with themselves and their new priest.

On a personal note, please also pray that my family finds a place to live that will be the proper balance for all 6 members of my family, so that the interests of God, our family, and their desires as individuals may all work together and achieve fruition in our new home.

May God Bless you!  A lot of family live in Mississippi, mostly down around McComb, and you'll find it to be a very warm and welcoming place.  Next time we are down to visit I'll drive up for a Vespers and Liturgy.  Not too many Orthodox churches down around McComb!

Glory to God for all things! I am especially happy, because Father Chris will be my parish priest! I've been looking forward to that for quite a while!

Lord, have mercy on Your faithful servant, his family, and all involved in his relocation.

May God be with you and your family, Fr. Chris, as you prepare for this move. I pray everything will go smoothly-housing, social adjustments, etc.  The Jackson parish is very blessed.  My prayers are with you all!

Prayers...
An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.

Lord, have mercy. Kyrie Eleison. May God help you with your move and may the situation in Mississippi will be always optimal for you and your family.

You are a great servant of God, Father Chris, and I am very happy to see that you received a pastorate of a parish. Orthodoxy in Mississippi will flourish and develop to the new level upon your arrival!
