First day at something by IakovosKriegor

Tell us about your first day at something — school, work, as a parent, etc.

My first day taking communion at the Greek Church near my house was unremarkable. I did not prepare worthily for it. You have to fast from 2pm till communion at about 7pm at the church. This includes dry fasting, which I am not capable of.

But why should the church talk about dry fasting? Their members are hypocritical. The priest never responds to my text messages. My godfather never replies to my text messages or answering machine messages. Whenever somebody at the church wants you to stop talking, they say ‘you go and have a good day.’ I feel insulted by that.

Communion either has lost its mystical properties, or nobody at the church takes communion worthily.

I sure wish I had the courage to rebuke them, but usually, people don’t have enough respect to me to listen to my correction, or apply it to their lives.

Well, there isn’t any point in going to the Orthodox churches in Brisbane, then.
