Congratulations to serb1389, our newest Global Moderator!
« on: November 06, 2013, 03:44:22 PM »
The Administrators of OC.net are happy to announce the election of serb1389 to be a Global Moderator, filling the vacancy created by Veniamin's busy offline life.

We pray that his ministry (with LizaSymonenko, his fellow GM) will be fruitful and blessed.  He will also continue in his role as the primary person overseeing new account approvals.
"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.""

Congratulations, Father!

Axios!
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.

Anyway good choice, Serb is a good guy.

Congratulations!
Quote from: Fr Alexander Schmemann
The Gospel is quite clear: both saints and sinners love God. "Religious" people do not love him, and whenever they can, they crucify him.

Of course, OC.net is not reflective of the Church, but is rather a surreal bubble. I have visited a lot of different parishes around the world and have listened to many hours of AFR...

God grant you many years, Father!
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Translated from the Russian by E. Kadloubovksy and G.E.H. Palmer, Faber and Faber, London, Boston, 1992 printing.

Anyway good choice, Serb is a good guy.

His name used to show up differently in the user list because of his responsibilities viz-a-viz account approval; hence, the confusion.

Axios!
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
