Understanding the Nature of “Idolatry”

The following is informative only. It is not intended to damn the practitioners of any faith, nor to prove that any practices are correct or are incorrect. Please read objectively, and do not read into what is written, read only what is written and take it at face value. What I DO encourage, is you to do your own, independent research into the matter. Learn as much as you can, and draw a well informed, logical and intelligent conclusion. Idolatry in our day and age is completely misrepresented and misunderstood.… Read More

Happy New Year, 2017!

My dearest friends and family; I wish for you nothing but the best in this new year. May it be filled with happiness, prosperity and success. May none of you experience pain, neglect or sorrow. But most of all, my wish for you is that you will grow in faith, good deeds and in your prayer life. The world isn’t getting any safer, better or more secure. There simply is no better time to decide to make the change. If not now, when? And if you are not for yourself, who… Read More

A Final Goodbye

It is with great sorrow that I attended funeral services for a very dear and close friend, the Reverend Father Archimandrite Seraphim Graham Turland following his long battle with cancer. He entered into repose on the evening of December 25th, or early morning of December 26th, 2016. Seraphim was a kind soul, and a man of great consideration for all of creation. A man who would do anything for anyone and not think twice. His final funerary liturgy was held Tuesday (12/27) at Saint John’s Orthodox Church, 20043 Highway 36, Covington, LA. Services took… Read More

Google Allo and Me

Well, Google is changing things up again. Whether for the good or for the bad remains to be seen. I downloaded Google Allo to give it a go, but none of my contacts appear to be using it. From initial toying about, it seems to be nothing more than a Googlized Kik with Google Now assistant integrated. It is essentially an advanced Google Hangouts with SMS and a host of other features. I have for a while, used Google Hangouts as my exclusive SMS solution (though Google provides an exclusive SMS/MMS… Read More

19th Century Guide to Letter Writing

Because of my new pen pal relationship with a Facebook friend, my interest in proper letter writing has been renewed. As a result, I researched a great deal prior to penning a response to the letter I received from Phil. The result is an absolute gem that I discovered which is from the nineteenth century. Below is a public domain version of the manual “How to Write Letters: A Manual of Correspondence” published in 1883. A great resource for anyone that simply wants to do things “the old way”, and… Read More

Autism and Religion

As most of you already know, I have high functioning autism. In some ways, this is a blessing, and in others, a curse. I see the world in black and white. There is no grey. There is no maybe. There is no “kinda sorta”. Things are, or they are not one way or the other. Logic is my guiding principle. If it makes no common sense, and has no logic, it is stupid and should be given no further thought. For this very reason, I’m often viewed as an asshole.… Read More

WordPress Beginners

Coming soon to Theo’s Thoughts: WordPress for beginners. A lot of people have recently signed up with Who Inc. hosting, and their biggest questions seem to be related directly to WordPress. Many of them are coming over from SiteBuilder on other hosts, and just aren’t familiar with the flexibility and extendability of WordPress. As a result, I end up spending more support time explaining and helping with WordPress than assisting with other issues. To get around this, I’ll be doing a series at least once a week tagged #WordPressBeginners that… Read More

Gwendelynne and her Bugles

My daughter has discovered the joy of Bugles and “witch fingers”. She gleefully played with them last night (06/27/2016) for around thirty minutes, and then passed out with one still on her finger. Read More
