1 March 2016. Now, For Something “Good” About the Orthosphere

05g Faces of the Faith... Ethiopia

______________________________

The Oriental and Eastern Orthodox form a coherent sociocultural whole… we may not be in communion, but our ethos and civilisation are the same, despite outward dissimilarities. That’s the Orthosphere… a world outside of the corrupt and degenerate West. Love those drum-beating dabteras… it’s utterly traditional and not modernist at all…

4 April 2015. You Can Learn a Lot from a Singer…

00 Bob Marley. 04.04.15

______________________________

I think that you can guess that I’m a big-time Bob Marley fan from WAY BACK… however, Don’t Worry, Be Happy wasn’t Bob’s… that was Bobby McFerrin. Most people associate that with Bob, but it isn’t his. Bob was a serious Rastafari, and he accepted baptism in the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church before his death… that makes him part of the Orthosphere. Remember, that’s a sociological, civilisational, and cultural category, not a statement about who’s in communion with whom… so, Orthodoxy (both Eastern and Oriental) is as one from that POV. God willing, we’ll be able to surmount the theological problems someday… we’re already one in a secular sense.
