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.
Well the plans are in motion. It looks as if I will be traveling back to Uganda...this time for an entire month, probably in February. While I look forward to seeing old friends...including Stacy...I am not looking forward to being away for home for this long. I dread it actually...but...I trust God will keep and protect us all both from physical and emotional harm. Your prayers are certainly sought and your support of my beloved in my absence would be MUCH appreciated.
