2017 Fall Fun Day

Orthodox parishes in Baltimore occasionally get together for a day of prayer and fun. I had a fantastic conversation with one of my teenagers.

On Saturday 4 November 2017 we had our annual Fall Fun Day.  Three parishes participated. Deacon James of St. Andrew fetched me at 11:30 and we went to Cathedral Gardens for the Fun Day.  We took the "scenic route".  It was really great being greeted by my kids. I greeted one girl and she came over and hugged me. This was a very pleasant surprise.

Dr.Pat was fantastic with games, as usually. Fr. John once said that if you look up "kids' games" in the dictionary, you will see her picture. The kids have a great time and they learn Bible lessons.

Of course, there was plenty of great food. Everybody who attended had a really good time.

We ended the day with Vespers. I can't believe that I forgot to bring my vestments with me, but I always keep a set of cuffs and two stoles at the chapel and there was a robe which I could and did wear.  The services was one of the best Vespers service at the chapel.  One reason is that the congregation did most of the singing.  They did not sing the proper, but they did sing the common.

One reason that I love being Orthodox is that I can go anywhere in the world and serve.  I do not have to know the language. Thank God that all the involved parishes knew the words.

Andrei brought me home since he needed to stop by the church and I'm just over a mile from the church.
