I do not really want to say a whole lot about the current situation with evlogia, but as a small element of it affects me, I feel it must be addressed.  I am saddened, as I am sure many of you are as well.  Those Orthodox Christians who have looked to her for guidance, let us be slow to judgement and remember that we are called to love.  None of us truly knows the situation, and take heart knowing that ultimately only Christ is unchangeable.

I also want to apologize to each of you who have been so supportive of Letters of Grace.  I want to assure you that I had no idea what was happening. It weighs heavy on me that I feel I have let so many wonderful Orthodox mom's down, especially those of you I spoke with personally at the St. Emmelia conference.  Katherine has graciously handed the project over to Mat. Emily and I, and we are in communication as to where it will go from here.  There are some changes that will need to be made, but it is certainly my hope that the project can be completed.  At this point, I would ask your prayers.  Pray for Katherine and her family as they go through this incredibly difficult time.  Pray for Emily and I as we try to make a decision on the future of Letters of Grace.  And pray for me.
