As Gentle As Snakes, As Shrewd as Doves

Riverside Orthodox church will be "outpost of heaven."

Amid the noise, dust and strewn-about electrical cords of the construction project for Riverside's St. Andrew Orthodox Christian Church stood four tall bearded men in black.

The four monks, visiting Riverside from their Colorado monastery, were painstakingly painting a scene of Jesus offering communion to his disciples and trying to remain in a devotional frame of mind...

My favorite line from the article:

Gregory, 65, is the leader of the small Genuine Orthodox Church of America, which is identical in most ways to the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church that St. Andrew is affiliated with.

If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, challenge them to a fight. If anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, air their dirty laundry. If anyone forces you to go a mile, berate him continually. Give to those deemed worthy (if they pass a drug test), and turn not away from billionaires in need of tax breaks. This is [not] the Gospel.

I don't mean to offend or criticize any Old Calendarists but is it just me or does anyone else find that little funny that an Old Calendarist archbishop is painting icons for a New Calendarist parish. :angel: I mean, it is completely understandable and acceptable but still a New Calendarist parish. I can imagine how awkward situation can be if some overly zealous parishioner happen to open their mouth in a wrong time... ;D
But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and thou shalt love him as thyself; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God.
