Posted tonight on the Orthodox Christian Information Center site:
- Shine As the Sun: C.S. Lewis and the Doctrine of Deification, by Chris Jensen (Road to Emmaus). One of the best articles I've ever read on C.S. Lewis.
- Notes on the Jesus Prayer, by Fr. Artemy Vladimirov (Road to Emmaus).
- What Beef Have Women Theologians with Divine Order? Orthodox Theologies of Women and Ordained Ministry, by Rebecca Herman. A response to Dr. Valerie Karras's argument for women Priests in
Thinking Through FaithNew Perspectives from Orthodox Christian Scholars (St. Vladimir's Seminary Press, 2008).
- Photos from Feast Day of St. Paisius Convent in Safford, AZ,
November 28, 2008. These photos show the tremendous progress the nuns
have made in building their beautiful Byzantine-style church (modeled
after St. Nicholas Church at St. Anthony's Monastery in Florence, AZ). They need a plasterer!
The convent is in great need of a real plasterer (i.e., not a stucco
manthere is a difference). The plasterer does not need to have any
experience with limestone plaster specifically. They just need to be
able to screed a wall flat (using beads is normal), watch the curing in
order to add a second color coat on top of the first at the right time,
etc. Anyone who has experience with traditional plaster should be able
to learn how to apply the product they are using. The convent is
willing to pay for travel. If you can help or know of anyone that can, please contact them.
Wishing everyone a most joyous Nativity of Our Lord,
