I keep trying to upload a custom avatar, but I get told that the upload directory is not writable.  I've reduced the size of the image to what I believe is acceptable.  Any ideas what the problem might be?

Check that your image is no more than 150w x 200h pixels (jpeg, gif or png) and try again.

Yes, question. How do I grow a beard on my avatar?

Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.
