I live in Kansas City as well! Welcome to the forum! Please come and visit our bookstore at St. Mary of Egypt Orthodox Church:
Desert Wisdom Books
3101 Troost Ave
Kansas City, MO 64109
The whole bookstore has just been remodeled and opened after Pascha. I think you will be very impressed by the selection! Call ahead to check on the hours of the store, but I know that it is open almost everyday of the week and is usually run by one of our resident nuns.
Where have you been attending services? I noticed that your jurisdiction is the OCA, so I'm going to guess you're attending Holy Trinity?
Thanks, that's great. Wednesdays we're at the broadway medical building office by St Luke's Hosp. Usually I don't start till 11am, so that's very close!!!!! ( I work for a urologist 3 days a week). I've been on call every Sunday since I've met with Fr. Tim at Holy Trinity, I'm getting SO dejected.
But I'm off this weekend
I work 2 jobs.) Isn't there an outreach program of some sort there? Now that you've mentioned the book store, I remember one of our patients mentioning it. Maybe I'm mistaken.
