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.

Well, I take a break for a semester and look what happens! gets all changed up, there's all these new folks that I don't know, and I get Chrismated.  All of these are good things, though.

It is nice to be back, though, and I'm looking forward to be being a lurker again.  I don't have much to contribute on this board, but I always like seeing what other people have to say, even if I don't agree with it or understand it (which happens quite a bit).

I'll be around, and congrats for all the hard work!  Many years to!

Arise, O God! Judge the earth, for to Thee belong all the nations!

Dear Philip,

Congratulations on your Chrismation.  Nice name, too! 

Mor has an open appeal. This we knew already.

Mor suffers from Invincible Ignorance and is guaranteed salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church.

Dustin, Phil, Bobby,

Congratulations and prayers for many more years
