Now THAT's American Orthodoxy.
The best part is that the dome is made from an old satellite TV dish from the church's property.  Then plastered and painted.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Good planning like this (and why should every Orthodox parish have to look like Hagia Sofia or Christ the Savior?) is way much better than rushing to get a storefront or a mobile home and be stuck there for years and years due to lack of growth.

I tried to suggest this revolutionary concept to a bishop once: project planning, instead of just rushing into starting doing things and see what happens.

He said it would be lack of faith in the Holy Spirit. :o
Many Energies, 3 Persons, 2 Natures, 1 God, 1 Church, 1 Baptism, and 1 Cup. The Son begotten only from the Father, the Spirit proceeding only from the Father, Each glorifying the Other. The Son sends the Spirit, the Spirit Reveals the Son, the Father is seen in the Son. The Spirit spoke through the Prophets and Fathers and does so even today.

Seems we reveal our own sins so often. Pray.

This billboard actually does have a grain of truth to it.



But just because marriage has been "redefined" as a social institution doesn't mean that the Church's essential definition of holy matrimony has changed. That hasn't.
I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom
