An unworthy Deacon, named for the brother of God: James, striving to "work out his salvation with fear and trembling" within the Tradition (paradosis) of the Eastern Orthodox Faith. It is a strange and marvelous journey, and I am accompanied by the fourfold fruit of my fecundity. My wife, the Matushka or Diaconissa Sophia, is my beloved partner in the pursuit of Theosis, and she ranks me in every way.
The Energizer Snow Okay, I realize the abbess wanted snow, but this is getting crazy! They expected to switch to rain by 10am, and it's being snowing solid since we woke up and we've gained another four inches so far with no end in sight. Getting home from Liturgy was a bit of a challenge in some areas. But now we are home, sitting by the fire, sipping coffee (Snow Cap later) and watching the gigantic flakes fall. It is lovely...since we've no place to go.
The white stuff all over the place is, according to local news and the NWS, rain. Even now as we are getting pounded by more and more white fluff, we are told it is raining. Additionally with all the "wet rain" hanging on the trees, we are hearing trees and their branches going down everywhere...the lights are flickering...
