I have 29 tabs open right now.  I think my laptop needs a time out...   :P
And maybe so do you!  :laugh:
When I find my off switch, it will be a blessed day.    :angel:
and that's why I pick my nose
Picking your nose is your off switch??  ;D  I'm not testing that theory.  I'll have to settle for made-for-TV movies once in a blue moon.
I'm not sure, but the off switch must be somewhere in there...

If you take a metal rod and jam it in just right, you may find it.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

Once Christ has filled the Cross, it can never be empty again.

Nice try, Mr. Lobotomist.

You must have a very powerful laptop.   :) Even with my new desktop system, I try to keep fewer than 10 tabs open.

Oh, you want a personality change?  I was talking about the "off" switch.  Call me Mr. Kevorkian.

Since I mentioned on goodreads that I was reading the DBH Universalism book, two users have "liked" that status update, and both are Russian bots advertising sex sites. I have faith that intelligent readers will draw the proper conclusions about this.

For the record, I meant the joke to be about Russian bots, not the sex sites. Oy.

Russian bots are so developed that they are interested in religion?
Or does universalism lead to pornography?

I got it, but I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that with their posts.   ;D
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no idea, so there’s that.

It's one of those nights where a movie and wine sound fantastic.  And a big fluffly blanket.

Someone remind me: what's the name of that Protestant movement that remains outside Orthodoxy/Catholicism but likes to dig into and take on various aspects of ancient Christianity?

There is also "paleo-Orthodoxy". I love Thomas Oden.
