Lord have mercy.
I reject all that I wrote that isn't in accordance with the teachings of the Orthodox Church. Also, my posts reflect my opinions (present or former) and nothing else.

The pastor's fourteen year old daughter is among the dead.

It is nearly impossible for a smitten shepherd to minister to his scattered sheep.

Lord have mercy :(
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.

Lord, have mercy on your servants!
I no longer post on this forum as much as I used to, but I still read here sometimes, you are fully welcome to send me PMs or invite me to conversations at any time you wish!

Although I did not join an Orthodox Church, I still must thank all of my Orthodox brothers and sisters in Christ who accompanied me in my journey towards finding God.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. - 2 Corinthians 13:14
