    Kallistos Ware was recommended to me some years ago and his work was a good primer on being able to being able to comprehend Eastern Orthodoxy. Almost persuaded me. Memory eternal.

    Fredrick Buechner was recommended to me by one of my dissertation advisors. The seminary gave us one of his books at our graduation. Memory eternal.

    Kalistos Ware was a new name to me. I’ll need to look him up. I’m familiar with Buechner. Two great losses too close to each other!

    I looked at all the articles, but really enjoyed the one about “Be Known What You’re for…” Most of my non-Christian friends only know that Christians are “for” a particular set of politics and against anything that involves fun or an alternative lifestyle. I’ve found that people are very intrigued when I mention some of the things I’m involved with that are sponsored through my church that are true humanitarian activities and/or fun activities. I also get asked if it necessary to be a church member to participate and I honestly tell them that it’s a no. We do share the message of the Gospel, and many come to faith, but it’s not a requirement. We figure something will “catch” eventually, and it often does.

    Christians come off as being the charter members of the Good Ship No Fun. It would be wonderful to share with people that the greatest joy really does come from knowing Jesus.
