Need some Greek help
« on: December 14, 2004, 04:51:01 PM »
I am writing out some Christmas cards and I want to write Christ is Born! Glorify him! in Greek. I am not sure if the Greek font is fixed yet, if it is I would be thankful for any help that could be provided.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

να γιατί πρέπει να ανακυκλώνουμε το χαρτί και εκτός των άλλων να

 

σβήνουμε τα φώτα όχι μόνο στην "Ώρα της Γης"

 

Ισχυρό παγκόσμιο μήνυμα για κοινή δράση ενάντια στην υπερθέρμανση του πλανήτη, θα στείλουν ένα δισεκατομμύριο πολίτες από 1.000 πόλεις και χωριά ανά τον κόσμο.
Το Σάββατο 28 Μαρτίου 2009, στη φετινή "Ώρα της Γης" στις 20:30 το βράδυ και για μία ώρα, οι πολίτες θα σβήσουμε τα φώτα, ζητώντας από τους ηγέτες του κόσμου - λίγους μήνες πριν την Παγκόσμια Σύνοδο των Ηνωμένων Εθνών για το Κλίμα στην Κοπεγχάγη το 2009 - δεσμεύσεις για δράσεις που θα μειώσουν τις εκπομπές αερίων του θερμοκηπίου, προς όφελος του πλανήτη.

Σύμφωνα με τη WWF μπορούμε να κάνουμε πέντε απλές κινήσεις στην καθημερινή μας ζωή και έτσι να μειώσουμε την ενέργεια που καταναλώνουμε άρα και το διοξείδιο του άνθρακα που εκπέμπουμε στην ατμόσφαιρα. Τα πέντε αυτά βήματα είναι : *Να σβήνουμε τα φώτα όταν δεν τα χρειαζόμαστε, εξοικονομώντας έτσι 178 κιλά εκπομπών CO2 στην ατμόσφαιρα και 18 ευρώ τον χρόνο. *Να χρησιμοποιούμε λαμπτήρες χαμηλής κατανάλωσης μειώνοντας κατά 240 κιλά τις εκπομπές CO2 και κερδίζοντας 25¤ κατά τη διάρκεια ζωής της λάμπας εξοικονόμησης. *Να αγοράσουμε πλυντήριο ρούχων ενεργειακής κατηγορίας Α. έτσι θα εξοικονομήσουμε 215 kg εκπομπών CO2 και 23 ευρώ τον χρόνο. *Να αντικαταστήσουμε τον ηλεκτρικό θερμοσίφωνα με ηλιακό και να εξοικονομήσουμε 1,14 τόνους εκπομπών CO2 και 120 ¤ τον χρόνο. *Να μην αφήνουμε σε stand by TV, βίντεο , στερεοφωνικό αλλά να τα σβήνουμε. Έτσι θα εξοικονομήσουμε 290 κιλά εκπομπών CO2 και 30 ¤ ετησίως.

 

Could you tell me what is this about? I got it on my e-mail from the person I don't know and have completely no idea what it is.

I'm not asking you to translate all this text but please write a few-senteses synopsis.

This is amazing! It is a reminder about "Earth Hour".
"Earth Hour" is a movement which started in Sydney Australia in 2007. For the last two years, on the last Saturday of March at 8:30pm, people in the city of Sydney turn off all electrical devices for one hour and light candles to remind us of our need to be good stewards of the Earth and conserve resources. Here is a video about how it all started:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1CRs-7lRlPo
In just two years, the movement has gone global and now Earth Hour is being officially observed in 1,539 cities and towns in 80 countries! This email is from Greece where several cities have committed to Earth Hour.
For more information abbout Earth Hour, see: http://www.earthhour.org/
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

It's about one of the first Orthodox monastery's in Poland "Oρος Grabarka". The monastery can be traced back to the 12th century. In 1710 it is believed that 10,000 people were saved from an epidemic or black plague though the monastery's help and prayers.
Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Πολωνική Αυτοκέφαλη Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία
Poloniki Aftokefali Orthothoksi Eklisia
or
Αυτοκέφαλη Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία της Πολωνίας
Aftokefali Orthothoski Eklisia tis Polonias
(Bold letters suggest the stress. The first one is a verbatim translation. The second one means "Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Poland") 
Ἦχος Βαρύς

Ὁπλιτικῆς φάλαγγος οἰκεῖον μέλος
ὁ τοῦ βάρους σὺ κλῆσιν εἰληφῶς φέρεις.
Ἧχον τὸν ἁπλοῦν τὸν βάρους ἐπώνυμον
ὁ τοὺς λογισμοὺς ἐν βοαῖς μισῶν φιλεῖ.
Ἀνδρῶν δὲ ἄσμα δευτερότριτε βρέμεις.
Ὧν ποικίλος δὲ τοὺς ἁπλούς ἔχεις φίλους.

A more proper and formal version, in keeping with conventional usage, would be to drop the article της/tis from the title, so that it reads Αυτοκέφαλη Ορθόδοξη Εκκλησία Πολωνίας/Aftokefali Orthothoski Eklisia Polonias.

Not AXIA? ἄξια.
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

You're right! Got carried away with all the vowels!

I was also thinking of how it would like if more than one person was worthy!

Which one would be correct (in case of the feminine plural)?

Aftes einai axies or Aftes einai axioi?
