Land Campaign

Our church has begun its first capital campaign to pay off the land we have purchased. This is a small campaign that is going to be done with brochures only. It is kind of a trial run for the big building  campaign, which will happen sometime after we pay off the land. The online version of the brochure can be found here: If you would like to receive a paper copy or would like to make a contribution you…

And a child shall lead them….

I heard a good story at church yesterday concerning a five year old boy in our parish. Recently it was the boy’s Saint’s Day and his parents were struggling to find him an appropriate gift that would either teach or have religious significance, but not be inappropriate for the age.. They finally settled on a Veggietales DVD. They wrapped it up and gave it to the boy who was very excited to be getting a gift. The boy opened it…

I hope they fix it soon because I enjoy visiting daily. Maybe one of my website design guru…

It is kind of shocking to be running through your daily list of web pages and come across one with your picture. In other good news we have also just received eight people to…

Silly church signs can make you think

I have always found the little sayings churches put on there signs trite, silly and a number of other things. Becoming Orthodox has only increased that feeling. But ever once in awhile I run across a sign that still has those characteristics but makes me go huh that is pretty funny and ironic. The most recent of which was on the sign of an Assemblies of God church, which read: “WRONG IS ALWAYS WRONG, EVEN IF EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING…
