It is our hope that this blog portal might offer to our visitors an opportunity to dialogue with our priest on topics which are vital for our salvation. We will discipline ourselves by focusing our dialogue on questions pertaining to the Orthodox Christian Way: our Faith, Ethos, and our "working with God".

Wisdom from Metropolitan Anthony Bloom
"I would ask my reader to treat God as a neighbor, as someone, and value this knowledge in the same terms in which he values a relationship with a brother or a friend."
"When we fulfill the commandments of Christ, not merely as rules of behavior, but because the will of God has impregnated our heart, or even when we simply curb our ill-will with fulfilling them outwardly and stand in repentance, knowing that there is nothing in us beyond this outer compliance, we gradually grow into the knowledge of God, which is inward, not intellectual, rational, or academic."
"When we enter into the knowledge of God, we do not contain God, but are contained in Him, and we become ourselves in this encounter with God, secure in His vastness."
