Hello.

My name is Zachary (though my real last name is NOT LaRue, like my avatar's) I was raised Southern Baptist, spent some time as an agnostic, then converted to Roman Catholicism not too long ago. I was introduced to Eastern Orthodoxy through the Jesus Prayer and, through quite a deal of research, became slowly convinved of the truth of the Orthodox faith. I attend Vespers with the Orthodox Christian Fellowship on campus and will be attending my first Divine Liturgy this Sunday.

I am a sophomore university student in my university's Honor's College and am double majoring in foreign language teacing (specializing in Latin) and Classical Cultures. I have a minor in ancient studies.

It is a pleasure to meet you!

Veni, veni Emmanuel!

Welcome! I apologize for my tardiness in greeting you...things have been busy, what with work, family and various projects I have going on.!

I apologize for my delay: these past few weeks I have gotten on Gaia primarily to play zOMG with my girlfriend and earn a bit of gold.

An update: I have attended, as of today, two Divine Liturgies at a Greek Orthodox parish and am astounded by the beauty of the liturgy. Both times, I had goosebumps.

I am currently helping the OCF at my university prepare a talk by the priest of the parish I have been visiting. Over the summer, he went to Mt. Athos, and we are trying to arrange for him to speak to my school. We are focusing our advertisements on the English, History, Philosophy & Religious Studies, and Modern Language & Classics departments.

Now that the semester is over, my Mondays are rather aimless without Vespers (I live two hours away from the nearest Orthodox Church)!

May I request to join this guild, to bring it up to a solid pair?

I apologize for the lack of continuity within this post.

If we don't get in contact before then, may you have a blessed celebration of our Lord's Nativity.

Hi there...I am James, the new owner of East and Now. I have been Orthodox for nearly 9 years, and am of the ROCOR jurisdiction. My goal is to make this one the liveliest guilds in Gaia..or at least not quite so dead.
