Maybe you all could explain all this "take back the GOA" stuff.

What do you mean?

It's too liberal? Too Greek?

What?

Then maybe you could explain how you are taking it back.

Yes, Capt'n Roberto,
I, too, am curious. I was under the impression that the three celebrants above are not (yet) Orthodox. Has the GOA gone into 'communion' elsewhere under your inspired influence?

Nektarios started a thread saying TAKE BACK THE GOA, so I thought it would be funny to say it too!!!

It is a joke that started when I was talking to somebody about politics and Orthodoxy and Howard Dean came up.  Since I was talking about being annoyed by organs, pews and other GOA type things....somehow "Take back the GOA!" was born.

There have been some strange threads here, but this has got to be one of the strangest.

I sure wish I could "take back" a lot of the things I have done.

When you do, could you get them to celebrate the Divine Liturgy in English?

In that case there's a church just 30 minutes up the road that I could attend instead of driving the over an hour one way that I do now.

No need to worry, Linus, coffee hour is usually in English and that is the highpoint (and often only) in the GOA liturgical cycle.

Give in to the Hellenic Side, yes you want this http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0415086906/qid=1074832251//ref=sr_8_xs_ap_i0_xgl14/102-4533280-4288115?v=glance&s=books&n=507846  

Give into your feelings, Linus!!

My Hellenic side died with the 300 Spartans in the pass at Thermopylae.

I would like to learn koine Greek, however, so that I can read the NT and the Septuagint (as well as the Greek Fathers) in the original.

Liturgy is in Koine, so once you learn that you are good to go at the Greek parish.
