In addition to our blog, we would love to share with you some other blogs and websites with interesting, informative takes on Orthodoxy. Some of them are simply written, which makes it easy to understand, whereas others are more theology-based and offer the full religious history to various topics. Our humble blog, as you may have discovered by now, focuses on making fasting during Great Lent a rewarding experience , and not an unachievable process that many believe it is.
There are many steps in acknowledging, preparing, and observing Great Lent in an Orthodox home. Through our journeys to get closer to God, we should always continue to learn. Today, we have decided to share some of our learning with all of you. We hope, in turn, that you will share with us your knowledge, experience, strategies, recipes and ideas. So, as unusual as this may be that we would want you to read other people's work, we are offering a list of the more interesting reading we have found. Have a look for yourselves, and then come back to us and let us know what you think. Here is a partial list, in no particular order:
2. Adventures of an Orthodox Mom
A writer who works, raises children, and practises Orthodoxy shares her way of helping children
practice and understand the faith. http://www.orthodoxmom.com
An Antiochian Orthodox Church in British Columbia that shares a well-written description of
Orthodoxy, history, and faith -- all in layman's terms. http://holynativity.blogspot.com
Located in Greenville, South Carolina, this church website is abundant with rescources for
Great Lent and for other Orthodox topics. http://www.stgeorgegreenville.org
Although this is more about Greek food than religion, it is always an interesting read with many
personal stories and quips, as well as beautiful photos. The extensive Lenten recipe collection that
the Toronto, Ontario webmaster, Peter Minakis, has on his website always looks delicious
So, have a look at the other sites. Then, come back and tell us what you learned or what you found. We would love to have some discussion about these sites.
By the way, don't forget, tonight you break off the first leg from Kyra Sarakosti! Six legs to go...
Be at peace with your soul and heaven and earth will be at peace with you.
