XXX, Nectarios & Ixnay

I almost hate to update the blog, knocking this post (which is garnering lots of comments, 55 to date) from top billing. But, on googling “Orthodox Church” in the News category, the following announcements popped up from Ohio. I just found the juxtaposition striking and amusing. The Orthodox are always a little behind current trends.

Brandon Piety of XXXchurch.com will be the guest speaker at the Malone Chapel service at 10:05 a.m. Monday at the Johnson Center for Worship and Fine Arts, 2600 Cleveland Ave. N.W., Canton.

XXXchurch.com is a Christian anti-pornography Web site that tries to help people avoid pornography addiction. It was launched in January 2002 when founders Mike Foster and Craig Gross set up a booth inside the Las Vegas Adult Expo to promote the site and an alternative to porn. Members of the unique church group set up booths at America’s biggest porn conventions to help people break free from the influence of the multi-billion-dollar pornography industry.

Later on down the list was this —

Orthodox Christian Women of Akron — Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, 129 S. Union St., Akron. Book club starting Monday at 10 a.m. First book discussed will be Saint Nectarios-Saint of Our Century. 330-658-6255.

There was this, too —

St. George’s Orthodox Fellowship Centre — 3204 Ridgewood Road, Copley Township. 6 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Building for the Future, a fundraiser for Abstinence the Better Choice Inc. Speaker is Dr. Rozario Slack. Hors d’oeuvres and dinner provided. 330-864-1359.
