Massachusetts priest's journey from Lutheran to Orthodox Church
« on: September 14, 2013, 04:39:52 PM »
The Rev. Benjamin Kjendal began his career in ministry as a Lutheran pastor. However, something called him to the Orthodox Church. Today he is the priest at St. Stephen Orthodox Church in Springfield, Massachusetts.

From the article:
Quote
He added, it is "hard for us humans to let go of ourselves, to decrease. But only in doing so can we shine forth in our communities as the very light of Christ, the love of God in flesh and blood that we are called to be.”

“I will try to love the people here as God loves," the pastor said. "I will bring Jesus to them that they might go forth and bring Jesus to the world around them.”
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river
