Every Monday the Washington Times prints excerpts from a sermon and a side bar of information about a church. This week it is St. John the Baptist, ROCOR in D.C.

Sermon is here: http://www.washingtontimes.com/culture/20041108-121154-4888r.htm

The article about yesterday's service in memoria for the Communists taking over in Russia is here:

I haven't found the side bar about the church on-line yet.

The Times religion reporting is much better then that of the "Post".

I prefer The Washington Post.  It's more balanced.  The Washington Times is the right-wing equivalent of The New York Times in terms of editorials, but sans the quality in reporting elsewhere in the NYT.  The Washington Times, to me, is like Fox News in print.

I was there... we just tacked on a panihida to the end of liturgy.  The service was extra long because we had a visiting bishop.

Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

On most topics, I prefer the Post, but the Times religion reporting has always been better than that in the Post, particularly when the Episcopal Church is involved.

THe TImes food section is better too; most of the time the Post recipes aren't anything I'd ever consider making.
