If we had a miraculous talking St. Paul icon who preached a continual sermon with beautiful inspiring words, most of my parishioners would marvel for about a half hour and then post it on Craigslist to trade another parish for a silent weeping one.

One of the best posts I've seen on OC.net.

Usually mine runs about 15-20 minutes.  My wife gently let me know that the homily ran 30 minutes today (a slight reprimand) but then added that fortunately it was good (lol).  Many don't know this but that is why throughout Church history married clergy were standard for parishes.  The Presbytera was the only one that the laity could count on to shut the priest up when the wind started to get a bit long.   :police: 

Oh, and of course this one.

Technically, wouldn't the lives of adults be more valuable than children, since adults are capable of doing things, whereas children are totally dependent for the most part?

I don't know, they pay me the same for both.

Perhaps Friday is the time when the sys admin has time to play?
Play?  PLAY?? In Russia, is no play!  OUTRAGE!!!!
In Russia there is no  internet,what an OUTAGE  ;D
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

No matter where, no matter what, some folks will insist on using the Julian.

That's because Christ said to give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what it God's.
The Pope and his astrologers are neither God nor Caesar so he doesn't get to tell us how the heavens go.

Cristos a inviat!

And for my 30,000th post:
I once heard somebody explain why those who reject icons don't really understand what Christianity is all about like this: God who's had his back turned on us in the Old Testament (see the revelation to Moses on Sinai), turns around 180o and shows us his face in Christ. All the exuberant Orthodox iconography is the natural and logical consequence of this shift from invisible to visible (the Incarnation of God's Word).

The living Church changes organically and adapts (to a certain extent) to accomodate different cultures and eras. Your fascination is with amber fossil communities who idealize some particular past: Ebionites, Amish, Old Believers, Mennonites. That would rather be the sectarian than the catholic approach.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I would imagine, but from what I remember last I communed at a nunnery, no one held the cloth. Having two people hold the cloth may be one of those unnecessary things like having 20 altar boys at a Liturgy.

So you accept that it is God's free gift to you? A lot of Orthodox posters on this forum alone would disagree with you.
