Dear friends,

I am facing somewhat of a perfect storm right now.  Not only did Orthodox Great Lent just end with the Annunciation yesterday and the Entry of our Lord tomorrow, but Passion Week begins on Monday and next Sunday is Holy Paskha.  Translated in plain English this means “lots of very long church services”.  To make things words, Trump has just gone off the deep end in Syria, and this is very serious.  There is also A LOT of misinformation out there.  Finally, I have 118 unanswered emails in my main inbox.  Yes, one hundred and eighteen (sigh).

So something had to be sacrificed.

I decided the the crisis around Syria is more important than emails.  Sorry!!

So here is what I have decided:

I will only reply to urgent AND important emails during the next 8-10 days.

Therefore, if you want a reply, please email me again after Monday the 17th.

Sorry, but I only have one body, one brain, two hands and 24 hours in day.  I would need about 3x that amount.

Next, (I eliminated this next section as somebody has offered to help me)

I have a video of Sheikh Imran Hosein interviewing me (yes, not the other way around, he actually asked me to be interviewed by him for his followers).  The video is good quality, but the sound is not.  I also have a separate sound recording of good quality.   I need to find a volunteer with good computer video/sound capabilities and software to arrange it all one video file for upload to YouTube.  There is a short interruption (a loud truck) which needs to be cut out.

If you are such a person, email me and I will send you the download links for the video and audio files.

That’s it for now.  Sorry for the email situation, but the stuff with Syria is too serious and I need to focus on that right now.

God willing, I should have a full detailed analysis to submit you by Monday or Tuesday at the latest.  There is A LOT to be said, you will see.

Hugs and cheers to all,
