Orthodox Churches in Albuquerque, NM?
« on: October 24, 2008, 12:43:31 PM »
I have attended two Eastern Orthodox Churches in Albuquerque, NM, St. Greek Orthodox Church, and All Staints of North America Mission OCA. Does anyone have an experience of these parishes? Is what I find here that which is to be expected from the typical Eastern Orthodox Parishes?

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

Oh, honestly, I am not sure. These two Churches are my only experience of Eastern Orthodoxy outside of the internet.

I don't know the parishes, but I think the priest at the Greek Church is a friend who was in Cleveland for a long time (Fr. Paul - he's really tall, especially for a Greek).  He's a great priest.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."" Isaac Asimov
