    Not sure where my posts are going…third time lucky I hope.

    Thank you for sharing. Congratlations and many years to you [and Elizabeth!] on 5 years in the Orthodox Church. And, like Mimi, I look forward to Fr. Seraphim’s Memoirs — Volume 1 and any following too! 😀

    Thought I commented; perhaps a dream… 🙂

    Fr. Seraphim’s Memoirs sound wonderful: my prayers.

    Congratulation on 5 years in the Orthodox Church! [and to you too Elizabeth].

    I’d also like to see Alaska: and can recommend the Grand Canyon.

    Love the first 4 [and 5] for “5 Things I would do with a Million Dollars”! And my prayers for having Fr. Seraphim’s Memoirs (Vol. 1) published: God bless your work.

    Congraulations on 5 years in the Orthodox Church too — and to Elizabeth too.

    I’d like to see Alaska too: and I can recommend the Grand Canyon.
