A Minor Note

_mg_0466.jpg

While the world was turning and other matters of import taking place, Glory to God for All Things, crossed a half-million views today. Thanks for reading – I hope to make it worth your trouble. I simply appreciate the opportunity to think a bit and write. Blessings to all of you and a good evening. East Tennessee has had a rumor of a winter storm (which means we will likely see nothing of the sort). They tell us these things to sell bread and milk. Other Southerners will know what I mean…

    And blessings to you, Father. Thank you for all you do here.

    Surprisingly, we’ve had snow down here in Atlanta and it’s been lovely. Here’s to hoping you have some of the same.

    Well, I can’t really tell what’s happening in East Tennessee, at least not from the News-Sentinel website, but here in central SC, we’ve gotten a couple of snowflakes, along with a bit of rain. If it freezes, things could be interesting in the morning. Congratulations on all the hits, Father. I’m glad you’re here.

  3. William Says:

    Thank you for writing. Your words are a regular blessing to me and, I’m certain, to so many others.

  4. Hartmut Says:

    father, I am so grateful for this blog, for you sharing your thoughts with us. I am grateful for this virtuell community, for the love, kindness and the respectful exchange here.
    I want to thank you, father, and all of you, who write here.

    Indeed, here on Lookout Mountain it did snow, and I tried to talk my husband into telling me the roads were too bad for me to go to work this morning, but he just rolled his eyes and then turned over and went back to sleep. Ah Well..

    Bless you, Father, and thank you for the guidance you provide here. It has meant much more than I can express in words. So much more.

    Thank you, Father. I have learned so much here.

    We in PA are still waiting for some real snow! Not fair ya’ll are getting it!

    Now that’s something worthy of celebration. I am determined to read all or most of your posts at some point. I was able to do it for Ochlophobist, Energetic Procession & Pontifications and I will do it with this one.

    My former blog was at half of that number before I pulled the plug, and I thought that was huge!
    Fr. Stephen you are a blessing to the Internet, a place prone to great darkness, a lovely bright light.
    Here in Colorado we are trying to break out of the teens in temp! Brrr!
    Time to build a fire and get the coffee on.

    As I expected it produced a tiny amount of snow (seen at the edges of my yard) and very good bread and milk sales. No snow yet for the Tennessee Valley.

  11. Phil Says:

    Bless you Father, and thanks for your writing. It has meant a great deal to me.

  12. Tanya Says:

    Thank you for your wonderful blog, Father; it is such a blessing.

  13. Milan Says:

    Честитам отец!🙂 Congratulations! Thank you for your writing. This is really one special blog to me and – as I can see – to many others.

  14. neil Says:

    I echo the previous comments of gratitude. I read daily, though don’t often comment. Selfishly, I wish I could hold conversation with you in person once a week and ask you all of my fumbling inquirer questions, but your writing here and the comments of others is a big help to my journey, regardless.

    May God grant you many years!

  15. Ryan Says:

    Thanks you Father for all your good work!

    Following the Handmaid’s comment, this blog brings light, in often surprising ways. One of those surprises is that you serve in the South. I would be interested to learn why you believe the OC has taken hold in some pockets of the Bible Belt.

  17. Mac Says:

    Mary Bethany could have rolled over this morn however she chose to work for her reasons

  18. d.burns Says:

    Many years Fr. and congrats…. btw, what does snow look like🙂 Living on the Texas cost we don’t see much of anything below 40 degrees.

  19. The Scylding Says:

    Snow – it is white, and dominates the landscape for many months – at least here in Saskatchewan. Coming from an area where it snowed on average once every 20 years, to an area where there is continuous snow on the ground from mid-November to early April, was quite a change. At least we don’t get the 6ft of snow some get, – our average is about 2 feet per season. But then we see plenty of low temperatures – yesterday on my way to work it was -16 F (-28 C), and today the midday temperature is about 3 F (-15C).

    Variety. The spice of life…..

    Jim H, this post
    https://fatherstephen.wordpress.com/2007/07/20/orthodoxy-and-the-christ-haunted-culture-of-the-south/

    somewhat answers your question.

  21. Margaret Says:

    Fr. Stephen, Thank you for this blog! I echo others when I say it has been a blessing so many times! May God bless you and yours!

  22. Erik Says:

    I think I can claim a thousand hits all by myself. Thank you, Father.

  23. Jim H. Says:

    Anonymous — thank you! I’ve read everything O’Connor ever wrote and it certainly makes sense that Orthodox would find much to identify with in her writing — especially Southern Orthodox!

  24. T Says:

    Father Stephen’s work is not limited to this blog, either. Get into an interesting discussion with him, and he may just touch on it in his podcast, “Glory to God.”

  25. Reid Says:

    Fr. Stephen, let me add my congratulations as well and my thanks to you for taking the time to write.
