You have no idea how routine this is.  If the Chalcedonian conflict had been settled on a Ping-Pong table, you'd all be praying the Anaphora of St. Dioscoros right now. :)

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Well theoretically, if the Assyrian Church of the East has Chinese bishops that settled the Chalcedonies conflict, we would all be praying the Anaphora of Nestorius. :)

I take it you've never seen H.G. Bishop David play.  He'd wreck Forrest Gump.  I'll still put my money on the Copts.  ;D

Guys! They're not intercoursing. It's just an unfortunate angle.

One of the many beautiful traditions in the Armenian Rite.

It seems like an ancient church in Armenia, but I don't know which one.  I got it from here:

https://www.facebook.com/113585092007713/photos/a.905318269501054.1073741966.113585092007713/1008910512475162/?type=1&theater

The writing next to the picture is a prayer.  It doesn't identify the picture.
