One of my new co-workers attends an Antiochian Orthodox church. Her church had a falafel festival yesterday! Woo !
It wasn’t as big as the Greek festival from last weekend, but it was still fun. There was delicious food. I didn’t end up getting any falafel, but I did get some shawarma. Mmm…
My co-worker wasn’t there, but I did mention her name to a few people. One of them pointed out her dad. He was wearing a fez! Awesome! I tried to catch him to say hi, but he had gone into a back room or something.
The church building used to be a Lutheran church, but was bought and converted in the fifties. It had many beautiful icons. I want to visit sometime, but I’m always so busy at my own church. One of the church members suggested I attend Vespers on a Saturday night. Maybe I will – that sounds interesting.
