Just an update (if anyone is interested)
« on: July 02, 2012, 10:04:09 AM »
So I havent been on here at all lately.  Been really busy working in Florida during the week.  Basically my job is to run sound for a production company in the mornings and evenings, then all afternoon I sit by the pool or beach and sip pina coladas. I know, its a tough job, but someone has to step up and do it...

Being a catechumen has been great so far.  I come home to GA to work on the weekends and I attend liturgy when Im here.  Everything has been great!

There wasnt much reason for this post, but I didnt want anyone to think I maybe gave up on my journey since I havent been around much lately.  Im off this week for the 4th, so I should be able to keep up with whats going on around here.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

— Chrysostom

Good to hear from you, Timon!

We missed you!

Great to hear you are doing well!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
