"A brother questioned Abba Poemen in these words, "What does the Scripture mean: 'See that none of you repays evil for evil?'" The old man said to him, "Passions work in four stages: first, in the heart; secondly, in the face; thirdly, in words; and fourthly, it is essential not to render evil for evil in deeds. If you can purify your heart, passion will not come into your expression; but if it comes into your face, take care not to speak; but if you do speak, cut the conversation short in case you render evil for evil.""

The chrismation took place on Sunday, 1st November 2009 of James Paul Shipgood, by Fr George, assisted by Fr Dennis and Fr David.

Having been baptised into the Anglican Church as just Paul he took the name of James in Orthodoxy as a memorial of an old friend. He is one of our editorial team.
