Not sure if this is the right spot for this, but anyway I have decided to take a break from for Lent, so that I can concentrate on the season. I love you all, brothers and sisters, those of you who are Orthodox and those who are not, and humbly ask your forgiveness for any offence I have given. Pray for me as I pray for you all. I hope that you all have a blessed Great Lent and look forward to seeing you again after Pascha.
I believe in One God, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.

God forgives, and I forgive.

My current plan is to continue here, though I trust my participation will be better tempered through fasting and with more prayer.

Wishing you the best, Riddi. You'll be missed of course, but hope this will be a rewarding break for you.

Well, sorry to hear that, but I hope the break is beneficial for you. See you when you get back!

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

I will miss you, but I respect your decision. I hope your time away brings you much peace of mind and renewal of spirit. You needn't ask forgiveness from me, but I ask forgiveness from you for anything I may have said in an unChristian spirit.

Peace to you.

Tilting at windmills may be forgiven; but allowing our neighbors to be grinded in the gears will not. Denying the existence of the Creator may be forgiven; but ignoring the glories of creation will not."
