Today is my second 'anniversary' being Orthodox. Coffee hour is still hard for me...that means I'm not even on that chart yet!

I also LOVE the To DO list!

My wife does not like coffee hour, so we don't stay. Part of the problem is that they want to "prepare" stuff before coffee hour so there's a weird time where we sit and listen to a reading from the Prologue and then our priest talks about a book he's been reading (like the Arena or something). It's like something between a class and "killin' time".

So we just head out.

I love coffee hour. I love schmoozing. I don't answer questions though, unless someone really wants another six dumpling recipes or 12 more things to do with cabbage. There I feel safe.

Our Mission has one of the best "agape meal coffee hours" I know of. Always good food that is done beforehand, ready to go after liturgy, almost everyone stays, lots of good fellowship, a few "convert discussions" happen now and then. Fr. Damian does a class separately to give people time to greet and spend time with visitors etc etc. Visitors tell us they love the family atmosphere.

GH, 34 years? Which means you probably SHOULD be the one butting in. :)

the risk of real relationship, the sharing of sorrow, pain, and joy! the risk of not being acceptable or loveable if the truth about me is known to anyone besides Jesus!
