Source: Patheos Press Blog By Peter Enns I came across this blog post, now over 3 years old, while meandering through the internet this morning.

Source: WKBN 27 TV News By WKBN Staff [Youngstown, OH] Father’s Day has a whole new meaning for a Boardman man whose son gave him a one of a kind gift. Father Thomas Constantine of Saint John the Forerunner Greek Orthodox Church has been a part of plenty of Sunday liturgies, but the one celebrated Sunday is one he’s never going to forget. He stood side by side with his son, Eleftherios Constantine, as he became a deacon in the Greek Orthodox Church. Growing up in the church, Father Constantine taught all the children to love God.

Source: Orthodox Church in America COLORADO SPRINGS, CO [OCA] – In the midst of what Colorado officials described on Thursday, June 13, 2013 as “the most destructive fire in state history,” Archpriest Anthony Karbo and the faithful of Saints Constantine and Helen/Holy Theophany Church here once again are requesting prayers, nearly one year to the day after they faced the Waldo Canyon fire.

Though a well recognized fixture around several of the city’s churches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000…

In addition to its decision on tracking anti-Arab hate crimes, the FBI has agreed to track crimes against a number of religious groups it has never before tracked. The new categories include reporting crimes committed against Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses…

Source: Deseret News Compiled by Matthew Brown, Deseret News The uprising in Syria began as a peaceful protest for diversity and democracy during the Arab Spring of 2011. But it has turned into a holy war between Shiite and Sunni sects of Islam — with Christians and other minorities caught in the middle. The highest profile Christian victims of the civil war are two Orthodox bishops kidnapped in late April, and there is still no official word as to the whereabouts or fate of the two clerics, who were abducted as they returned from a humanitarian mission in Turkey. “We…

Source: B92 / Tanjug NIŠ — Serbian Patriarch Irinej has said that there was “much more that unites us with the Roman Catholic Church,” compared to that which stands in between. “We’ve always been close and lately it is even intensified, and we want to move away those the moments that keep us apart,” the Serbian Orthodox Church head told reporters at the opening of the exhibition “Naisus – Medians”, organized by the Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments of Niš.
