A friend wanted me to give him an Orthodox perspective, and I agreed, yet in my heart I felt that I could not meet his expectations. I could perceive that he most likely had a better idea of Orthodoxy than this miserable sinner. Yet I see great potential in him and want to encourage his walk towards Christ’s peace, knowing that at times I feel that I am far from it. Yet I do worship and pray to an all loving, all powerful, all wise God and I have committed myself to the Orthodox faith and can no longer turn away from any promise, even if it is at times beyond me. I must turn to God and exert what little faith that I do have that He will guide me where He wants me. So I pray for myself, for my friend and I do the best that I can.
I made this meme and it ain’t Orthodox, yet it does convey what I feel needs to be said. I know that there are folks like Father Kimel that can teach Orthodox theology a whole lot better, also Father Stephen Freeman has given me much to think on. so I sign off leaving you with this song to consider.
