I would say it is VERY important. Music is the poetry of a culture and springs from it's very heart.

It would certainly click with me. And I believe it would click with anyone here who is inclined to a more profound form of worship than found in Protestantism.


I pray that it will happen. Perhaps some bishop, somewhere, some day ...

May God bless your efforts and insights, and prosper the work of your hands (cf. Psalm 90:17).

What a cute couple me and Amber made, Jake was the Dog of Honor.


This photo is rather suspect if only because that dog appears to be a discearnable breed (rott), yet not a pitt bull!

I'm not sure what my kids will think they are. Ethnically they're Scottish, Irish, English, Welsh, Korean, Swiss and Native American. They were baptized in the Antiochian Church and go to a Carpatho-Russian Church now (though my daugher vaguely remembers our previous church before we became Orthodox). One was born on the West coast and one on the East. They have extended family that's Protestant, Catholic, Jewish and Agnostic/Atheist. They have second cousins that are fully caucasian, fully asian, and mixed caucasian and African-American. They have family in basically all corners of the country. They will both take Spanish in school.

I think we have our bases covered!

My in-laws are Swedish-Norwegian, Romanian-Germans, Greek, Chinese, Filipino, and Mexicans. It is rapidly becoming a mini United Nations.

When we were at Disney World last month we of course did the Small World ride. I thought maybe we should just move in there.

Much better than *my* "UN" experience--

When we moved back to our home after evicting the tenants, we found a mini-UN: we had Mexican roaches, German roaches, and at least one more species frown

That was July 07. It's onl in th last month or two that we finally won the battles indoors. [we had to spend a week in a hotel before they were down enough to put the beds into the house!]

Two years of Truly Nolen, which only contained. Boric acid and the HotShot spray were the solution.

That would be the wingless Oriental cockroaches which can reach three inches, and the American Cockroach which flies and can be two inches long. The German cockroaches are under an inch, and do not fly, but they can speedily get there too.

In Georgia, my grandmother had all three and I spent my summer months getting rid of them. My first night was awful. I figured that the roaches would not get me through the mosquito netting and the pans of water under the bed, but those American cockroaches can fly and crawl. They have got to be the worse.

We had an old southern song my dad would sing:

Mosquito, he fly high
Mosquito, he fly low.
Mosquito light on me. [clap]
Mosquito fly no mow.

Oh, it ain't gonna rain no mow, no mow.
It ain't gonna rain no mow,
So, how in the heck can I wash my neck,
If it ain't gonna rain no mow.

Pani Rose,

I read this book many years ago while driving (yes - you read that right) from Minneapolis to Des Moines. It is a marvellous little book!

All:

This thread has gone all over the place and has gone off topic. Some posters have even been insulted by some of Jason's remarks.

Some of us, (Harmon/John's last post was particularly good) have earnestly tried to help Jason see and understand different points of view. I hope that Jason has appreciated the effort that went into those posts, and I hope that they have helped him.

At this point, I am sorry, but I think that it is time to close this thread because nothing can really be added to the original topic at this point.
