There ain't no way but the hard way.

On a personal note, I find it interesting that GisC believes the Phanar is right and so is obedient to it, and I believe the Pharar is wrong and believe that I should NOT be obedient to it, whereas Silouan is stuck beleiving the Phanar has authority that he must submit to even though he completely disagrees with it.  While each of us has decided his course, I wonder in 20 years who will still be on the same course and who won't, purely from a human interest.  Will I be able to maintain my ecclesiastical allegiance given its difficulty? Will Silouan be able to stay submissive to the Ecumenist patriarch of Constantinople? And will GisC still be happy with the Phanar or eventually become disillusioned if things don't go his way and his high ideals prove unworkable? Who knows.  Maybe in 20 years we can rehash this thread

I have a better idea.  Instead of rehashing this thread let's all get together for a drink (say, coffee, so that no one can accuse me of talking too much about alcohol . . . but I'll have a beer, you can have the coffee).

What the heck, why wait 20 years?  Let's rehash the topic now.  I'm thirsty.

These days I skip the beer and go straight for the Kettle One Vodka!

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

Others believe me to be strange and eccentric,

I'm sorry to go back to this old of a post, but when I finally read it I couldn't pass it up...

Yeah, GiC, at Holy Cross only a few unnamed 'others' believed you to be 'strange and eccentric'....  ÃƒÆ’‚  ÃƒÆ’‚ Smiley Wink Cheesy Grin Roll Eyes
