|The tables are all set up for today's festival|
Worship- my 110th time - at Vespers was beautiful as always. Really enjoyed the Kathisma (Psalm 2) plus the choir sounded especially good tonight!
Fr. Gary's homily was all about preparation. He remarked about how, for a long time now, people of the parish have been preparing for the ethnic festival taking place today. He mentioned how, as Orthodox, we are always preparing. Whether it be Great Lent or some other way, we are preparing for something. The great job of our life, he says, is to prepare for our death. That is something that will happen to all of us and we want to make sure we are prepared. Sometimes we feel like we are prepared and sometimes we feel we are not. May God help me always to be in a state of preparation.
Yes, today is the ethnic festival and Tiffany texted me saying "Even Nazadox's can go" (Ha ha ha - that would be me- half Nazarene/half Orthodox) I would like to go but I do have a busy day planned so I am not sure. Although, having some summer borscht sounds good!
Hey, if you are in the neighborhood, stop by. I heard rumors that Jim and Tiffany will both be manning the beer tent.
