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 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.
