Washington Orthodox Clergy Association

Every month I look forward to getting together with my fellow clergy, some of whom I have known for centuries.

When one priest asked me, "How are you?"  I answered, "Blessed by the best!" which is a reply that I often use.  So he said to me, "So you have been around a few bishops!" Another priest asked me if I have a jeweled strap for my camera.  This is really an inside clergy joke based on my last name.

Fr.Sophronius from Kosova gave us a report on the dreadful situation there. I makes me even more happy and proud to be an American. I have not yet heard of anybody being arrested in America  just for going to church. But I know that the time is coming.

Fr. Dennis Buck, whom I've known since the 1980s, told us about Fr.Allister Anderson and his funeral which he served.

Fr. Ned Anderson and I were classmates at the seminary.  One summer his wife and I were co-workers.

Protodeacon Peter and I have known each other over 40 years. I was attending the Church of the Transfiguration and when it became canonical and he joined us.
