Daylight Savings Time
« on: November 02, 2003, 12:19:05 AM »
Last week we went back to standard time as opposed to daylight savings time.  I was wonder if the calendar nazis adjust their service times or don't adjust their service times to coincide or not coincide with daylight savings time?

For instance, say the starting time for services is 9:30 am.  When daylight savings time is started, do you move the time to 8:30 am so you won't be on an evil/worldly time keeping system?

For Pascha, many times it occurs after daylight savings time has begun.  If one is not careful, one could be celebrating the resurrection before the real actual day of Sunday has begun.  This is no laughing matter.  Imagine if the Paschal liturgy started at 12:30 am on Sunday morning.  In reality, it is really 11:30 pm Saturday night--what an abomination.
And they were first called Christians in Antioch
