i font like harry potter it leads people to the Wicca faith and to practice sorcery and witchcraft

Pretty sure the author belongs to the Church of England.

Scottish Episcopal Church, but close as makes no difference.

Thanks.

The Harry Potter books should be read in the following order:

1. Redwall
2. Pages 126-233 of Harry Potter IV
3. The Hobbit until you get to the dragon
4. ASCII art depicting Cary Fischer's final moments
5. The eagles scene from Lord of the Rings overlayed with the intro music from Star Trek: First Contact
6. Harry Potter I, just the childhood abuse scenes
7. Lavar Burton's autobiography, read while glancing at a poster of wonder woman and an IDF recruitment pamphlet
8. The train scenes from the Narnia series
9. Rowling's tweet where she makes Harry and Hermione get together

Quote from: Fr. Thomas Hopko, dystopian parable of the prodigal son
...you can imagine so-called healing services of the pigpen. The books that could be written, you know: Life in the Pigpen. How to Cope in the Pigpen. Being Happy in the Pigpen. Surviving in the Pigpen. And then there could be counselling, for people who feel unhappy in the pigpen, to try to get them to come to terms with the pigpen, and to accept the pigpen.

Wait, when do you read the comments she made about Johnny Depp? From what I've read on Twitter that's the most important stuff she's said in the last decade ???

Finished Goblet of Fire a few hours ago.  Next is Order of the Phoenix.  I hope I can read that in a week.

I wish I read these books when they were released.  My own hubris and incorrect assumptions kept me from reading them.  Plus, back then, I could read an entire book in 1-2 nights.

Quit flagellating yourself, it's only a mediocre fiction series. I'm glad you like it, but sheesh...
Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Finished Order of the Phoenix on Saturday.  I've started on Half-Blood Prince and borrowed Deathly Hallows once I finish Half-Blood Prince.

I've completed all 7 books in the Harry Potter series after finishing Deathly Hallows in a 10 hour binge session.  I enjoyed reading the series, which has elements of King Arthur, 1984, and James Bond.

My husband read the hardback in about 6 hours - started when we came back from the midnight run on release day, went to bed after an hour or so, then resumed the next day after breakfast and he was done by lunchtime. :o

Just a Pepsi at dinner.  I was motivated to finish the series.

A thought I had yesterday:

If the Paris School was divided into Hogwarts-style houses: Florovsky; Schmemann; Bulgakov; and Bloom (with their analogues being Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Ravenclaw and Gryffindor, respectfully).
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

THE OPINIONS HERE MAY NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED ORTHODOX CHURCH

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.
