Nah, I switched the language to Swedish in hope of learning some new vocabulary maybe a few months ago. Now I've gotten used to it to the extent that Finnish would seem weird.

Also, Swedish is the second official (albeit minority) language and Google has long ago stalked my location so googling etc. in Swedish does mostly the results I'm looking for.

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.

Unless you start a church that hands out free beer and sausage during services, you will always see more women in church...

Trust me, the thought has crossed my mind.

It used to happen at my parish, after Liturgy at the meeting for the Orthodox students, and yeah then it was 50-50 (but still, I haven't found a husband).

I doubt you'd be interested in a guy who's only interest in church is beer and sausage.  You seem a bit too complicated for that.

The more people think, the harder they are to pair off.  Of course, once the lid has been taken off the head, it is almost impossible to put back on.
