Un-Orthodox Church: St. Sophia finds worship in an unexpected space

The sign says Old Towne Square, giving things a Renaissance feel, but the smaller storefront signs point to a much more modern slice of life.

A hair salon. A coin collector’s shop. A neon-bathed bar.

But tucked into the far corner is a sign promising a window to a past much older than the land of strolling minstrels that somehow must have inspired the look of this red brick strip mall off Ninth Street: Saint Sophia Orthodox Christian Church...

Pretty cool! Fr Michael is wonderful, but I didn't know he was split between two mission churches, I knew he was technically assigned to St. James in KC but I didn't know he still helps serve at St. Sophias, may God bless him for his hard work!

We could see more of this!
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
