Monastery of the Holy Martyrs - Orthodox Monastery, Syriac Orthodox

 Have you stopped the monastery's new web site?  Come on by and visit, either on line or in person.  I love meeting new folks and make new friends.  I have never met anyone I did not like even those  who I seem to often and don't like me.  Lots of time they are the nicest people Christians, Jews, Muslims, and even Atheists are all welcome here. And we usually have coffee...and tea for those who want that.  nd some times the monastery's awesome soup.  It's awesome because my mother taught me how to make it.  But hers even even better and more awesome.

Deer in the Headlights Baptist Visits an Orthodox Church | A Field Guide to the Orthodox Church

Deer in the Headlights Baptist Visits an Orthodox Church | A Field Guide to the Orthodox Church: When one first enters an Orthodox church, it may be a scary or intimidating experience. There is often confusion about what everyone is doing, when and why they’re going around kissing things, and what a visitor should do or how to behave. “And did those people really just kiss the hand of that man in the Matrix outfit? Yes, I’m pretty sure that just happened.”

Nonviolent Jesus: Liberation from Wealth

Nonviolent Jesus: Liberation from Wealth  

"For this revolution is not, in fact, concerned with liberating us from
our poverty and misery, but rather from our wealth and our totally
excessive prosperity. It is not a liberation from what we lack, but
from our consumerism in which we are ultimately consuming our very
selves. It is not a liberation from our state of oppression, but from
the untransformed praxis of our own wishes and desires. It is not a
liberation from our powerlessness, but from our own form of
predominance. It frees us, not from the state of being dominated, but
from that of dominating; not from our suffering, but from our apathy;
not from our guilt, but from our innocence, or rather from that delusion
of innocence which the life of domination has long since spread out in
our souls." - Johann Baptist Metz, "Christians and Jews After
Auschwitz"
