Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Florina

« on: March 20, 2005, 01:11:08 AM »

In the past year I have shifted my views on several topics and become more conservative and "traditionalist" (although I hate that term and do not label myself such).

I believe this position is correct but I am worried I have expressed myself in an overbearing manner at times.

I also worry that I have come across as anti-Western at times.  I love the Western traditions actually and denigrating the west was never my goal, but sometimes in my attempt to argue for the eastern position I might have seemed to be anti-western.

If I have offended anyone by my sweeping statements, I apologize.

I am seeking ways to express my conservative views without offending goodwilled people.

Please forgive me.

No apologies needed brother Dustin, we all have some imperfections which crop up time to time, Lord have mercy.

May you and your wife have a blessed Pascha.

An old timer is a man who's had a lot of interesting experiences -- some of them true.

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway, the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and the eyesight to tell the difference.
