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.
I attended a meeting this morning with regard to our Uganda project and the news has been nothing short of spectacularly good. Funds continue to be provided and we are moving ahead with plans to build a state-of-the-art cancer care facility including a research laboratory (my little role in all of this). I truly count myself blessed to be a part of this project and thank God for its continued success.
No new news on when I will be returning, but it is a certainty that I will at some point. Though we would be talking 2 weeks this time and not a full month.
