Announcing our new Global Moderator, Liza Symonenko
« on: September 05, 2012, 08:19:12 PM »
Good evening, folks!

After a careful search, prayerful deliberation, and a consideration of the needs of the forum, we are pleased to announce the selection of LizaSymonenko as the new Global Moderator!  She will work alongside Veniamin to assist our section moderators and act as general peacekeepers here on the forum.

AXIA!  WORTHY!  AXIA!
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
Met. Meletios of Nikopolis & Preveza, from his ordination.

 :) 

Thanks, everyone!

I am truly humbled.

My mother always taught me that when I was celebrating a special event, starting something new, or gathering with friends, I had to (first pray and then) be a "hostess" of sorts.  So, every year for my birthday whether I was in elementary school, or teaching school, I always brought cupcakes for everyone.

Therefore, please help yourselves to a virtual cupcake.  They do have 1 calorie a piece, so, be careful....and remember to thank the Lord for what you are about to receive before wolfing them down!



....thanks everyone for all your support and sweet comments.  They mean a lot.

I pray that with God's help and everyone's support I will be able to fulfill my new responsibilities successfully!

BIG HUG to you all!!!

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.

Playing that game would certainly help someone like me with fasting.  Liza does not strike me as the kind of person who gets her daily jollies from giving people the green meatball.  I would be going a long time between shots.
