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.
Over at the Farm blog, Susan is fairly sure Butter will kid today/tonight. Hopefully I'll be home in time. If you have a moment...as this is likely going to be a single birth...say a prayer for a doe. NO MORE BUCKS, please. It's never too late to ask.
