What’s new on the site
• On the East page, a summary of what Eastern Orthodox believe about Mary.
• On the Faith page, links to an article about St Benedict and to Holy Ghost Byzantine Catholic Church in Philadelphia, some fine people with a renowned choir. The background music on their site is worth the download wait.

Article: Edgy Orthodoxy 4 Seekers by Terry Mattingly, who is Eastern Orthodox.
A lot of the newer Protestant churches are dropping the word 'church' from their names - some of the slum churches near me call themselves 'Christian Lifestyle Centers' (huh?) and I understand the rich, white megachurches do the same thing. Americans don't like churchiness, a trend that has got worse — it's part of the anti-Catholic bias in the culture.
