Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me.

If I could request prayers, I'm planning on moving in the next month or so. I'll be leaving my Old Kentucky Home in favor of the Peach State. I have some really great friends there, who are now Orthodox catechumens, but they're about an hour and a half away from any parish. The goal is to, with the help of the local parishes, establish a mission in their city. I will be moving down in order to assist in that endeavor. There is another group down there of about 15 or so folks that also want to establish a mission, so it looks hopeful, though there also seems to be a bit jurisdictional politics going on. Yikes.

Anyway, having been out of work for months where I am, and having received a chance to move down to be with some of my best friends and help establish a new Orthodox community...I'm really excited about it all, though it's fairly big move, especially since I'm moving away from the parish at which I was catechized and received into the Church. So, again, prayers are much appreciated!

Lord have mercy.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Lord have mercy and bless you!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Congrats, Lord have mercy.

Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.
