HE WHO BEGAN A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL BE FAITHFUL TO COMPLETE IT.
This was today’s assignment in the blogging exercise – just the quote – and we are free to run with it. It is a great line from Philipians about how God does not let us down. I think we can apply this to our mentors as well. We had a clergy meeting this morning – a monthly occurrence – for our Metropolis, and the turnout was especially big because we celebrated His Eminence’s name day. A lot of our older priests were there and all of them, true to when they came of age, were without beards (again I am talking about beards). These are the clergy I have always looked up to. Due to health reasons my main mentor Fr. George Karahalios was not there. This bio is decent – there are glaring mistakes such as his dear wife’s name – it is Calpyso (Lee), not Eleni. Our elderly clergy are treasures and great resources for us. Please pray for them and, for my fellow clergy, take advantage of their presence and learn from them.
