I'm hoping this might be an accidental cause for me to have my parishioners present during Orthros this morning! And then after they experience this, the entire parish decides to always go to Orthros every day we have a Liturgy!

One can hope and dream, I guess! Smiley

Ironically, with the extra hour of sleep (which I did take advantage of), I still feel tired this morning...

May all your dreams of ideal parish life come true.

Yeah, I know what you mean.  I woke up this morning with that groggier than usual feeling that results from having slept TOO LONG. Tongue

Your body apparently still needs two to three days to get used to the "time change" no matter if you take advantage of the extra hour of sleep or not.

In the last few years, I set the clocks back in my house at 7:00 PM Saturday night and I haven't felt any ill effects.   Grin

That'd be me. Tongue  But, as Fr. Chris had hoped, I did make it to Orthros...just not at his parish.

Test

Yup.  The timestamp for this post (which I have set to my own local time as a personal preference) is an hour ahead of what it should be for my time zone.
