Orthodox Joke

In other news, I learned my first Orthodox joke:

“How many Orthodox does it take to change a lightbulb?”


Now I’m really ready to get baptized.

The next milestone is to start getting knock-knock jokes.

      1. “you are not even living in an Orthodox country”

        Well there is a cerkiew where I am… (cerkiew is only for orthodox in Polish, catholics and protestants go to kościół)

        I don’t know the Russian variety but I like the Greek, Bulgarian and Romanian orthodox churches I’ve been in… (and was in an Armenian one in Bulgaria once that was very weird looking but which I felt oddly drwn to…).


  1. Have you read any of Tolstoy’s non-fiction? I know that you are not a fan of Russian fiction in general, but the later Tolstoy was a Christian you might relate well to. Right now, I am reading Thomas Kempis’s Imitation of Christ. He has a lot on not being proud of academic learning. So there is a lot there that I am guilty of.
