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! :)

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.

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

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

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.   ;D

That'd be me. :P  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.
