On December 1 two years ago  our Member John passed to his rest.

He was a good friend to many here

Eternal Memory
"Never let anyone try to tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern. The West was fully Orthodox for a thousand years; and her venerable liturgy is far older than any of her heresies."

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

That was such a shock.  Hard to believe it's been 2 years.   I still remember his pleasure when I told him that that years Harry Potter book had been recorded for those who had sight problems.   :(

May he Rest in Peace.

I also had misplaced the time...hard to believe it has been two years. Reading his posts were always something I looked forward to.

Eternal Memory!

Lord, have mercy.

I too had thought about John recently.  It was two years ago today (4 Dec) when I got the phone call while walking into church confirming that he indeed had passed on.  Blessed is He Who has come, and is to come, and will raise the dead.   
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

...if you feel Mor really is in spiritual danger, pray the Jesus prayer for him.   :police:

Eternal Memory...Requiescat in friend from my home state of Massachusetts...

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.

Memory eternal.  John was a wonderful person and is missed greatly.
