Where is our fearless leader?
« on: July 29, 2013, 11:10:58 AM »
Has anyone seen or heard from Anastasios?  After resigning from the priesthood, I haven't seen anything further from him.  I hope he is ok...
If your leg causes you to creak, cut it off.  It is better to practice hesychasm with one leg than with two legs, one noisy, to abandon silence and the prayer.

Excellent news indeed.  I just wanted to make sure he is doing well.  Wish him well from the dregs of society here at oc.net.  ;D

Is he still an Old Calendarist?

 ;D  Yes, I believe so.

Ok. Just thought that since he resigned priesthood he might have also changed his religious affiliation.

Let's hope that wasn't his "personal reason" to leaving the Priesthood.

EDIT: At least, if you're an Old Calendarist.

He is still GOC. If you're curious about the reason, just ask him.

Is notorious synonymous with autonomous?

I will physically grab an Oxford dictionary and whack you on the back of your head through your computer screen.

Not that curious. It's none of my business.

Perhaps he is over in Mt. Athos fighting the police. GO ATHANASIOS!!! :D

Trisagion,

I would be careful about joking about that with Anastasios.  As a member of GOC, he has a very passionate opinion of what is going on over there.

Meh, he hasn't logged on in months.  That is why I started this thread.  :-\

^That wasn't really abnormal though. He had a lot on his plate before, and I imagine he still does, and hasn't been a regular poster in years and years.  :angel:

Well, let us hope he doesn't perma-ban me for my gentle prod in his direction.  ;)

If anything, he would be grateful for your concern on his behalf.

Nah, he's a nice guy, at least it seemed that way from the times we've talked on here and a couple times offline.
