Today is the 7th anniversary of OCnet's first founding as byzantines.org

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

My word how time flies.  :)  I wasn't there at the beginning, but I was there for a bit in the Days-of-the-previous-name.

I can hardly believe it's been nearly six years since I started posting here.  To all the old schoolers:  let's pause and reflect on the contributions of Joe Zollars, Seraphim Reeves, TomS, and any other memorable (in their own right) folks I may be missing.  :)

Over (3) years for me. But I can hardly believe that as well!

This is a very nice idea.

Thank you for contributions, all! Many years for OC.net!

That reflection on their characters was partly in jest.  ;)
They were certainly characters though.
