The Advent Conspiracy

I figured I'd blog about it right away since the shopping season is still a month away and I'm likely to forget by then. I think this idea is cool, but Orthodoxy pretty much teaches that anyways to begin with, so kind of a moot point for us :) Although it would be fun to answer questions as to why my Christmas tree is upside down XD (although not sure if that's a requirement of adherents to the Conspiracy, I didn't read the whole site, but would be fun to do anyways :D)

I found that website through an awesome blog I just discovered thanks to my mom called The Blind Cook, who anyone who watches cooking competition shows might know about already since she won one this year :) Go check her out!

This weekend I'm going to my parents place in the country with my friend Tiffany. It's supposed to rain tomorrow and Sunday but we'll make a campfire tonight and spend the rest of the weekend watching movies and cooking :) I can't wait!

No time?

I came across this article just now, about a scientist that says time does not exist. This clicked with something in my memory, I remembered reading somewhere something about God and the saints existing outside of time, God is everywhere present always at once. Something about when the world ends there will be no time maybe, or that after we pass away we exist outside of time? Anyways if anyone could link me to any useful articles regarding Orthodoxy and non-existence of time I would appreciate it to refresh my memory. A quick google search of "Orthodoxy and time" didn't really bring up anything relevant. It would be awfully funny/ironic if this was another one of those cases of "Science proving what we already knew"... in this case the "we" being Orthodox Christians :P And here some people are saying science and religion are mutually exclusive!

You should be Orthodox

When asked to describe Orthodoxy in the future I'll refer to us as "the hipsters of Christianity" :P Some funnies, part 1 and part 2.
