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...

I'm Facebook friends with him.  He's fine, I assure you.

Thank God.  :angel:
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

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

 ;D  Yes, I believe so.
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.

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.

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

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:

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.
