Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory Forever! - An introduction
« on: February 17, 2010, 10:17:26 PM »
Hello folks,

I have finally found my way to this forum.

Just wanted to introduce myself.

I am a baby deacon having been ordained on the 13th of September 2009.  I serve the same UOCofUSA parish Heirodeacon Vasyl' (1 of the members of this community) serves in Boston MA.

I was born in Ukraine and immigrated to the USA in 1988 when I was 13 years old. 

I work at a law firm as an investigator and run a little Orthodox Vestment shop on ebay part time.

Welcome.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Thank you for the traditional Hleb Da Sol' (Bread and Salt), but where is the Vodka?!? :)

Oh... wait... Never mind, we are in fasting!

If I could figure out a way to send vodka over the internet, I would have certainly offered some...but I'd probably never leave my computer either, so it's probably a good thing I can't ;)

Welcome to the forum Father Deacon!

Yippy for another Ukrainian from the UOC of USA!

(The audience all stands and applauds!)

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
