Despite the frigid temperatures that cover much of the United States and that have spilled into parts of Eastern New Mexico, there remains open-water fishing on many of our lakes.
 
That includes Eagle Nest Lake, which would normally be New Mexico’s prime ice-fishing destination.
 
Warm temperatures created areas of open water and the fishing was fair for rainbow trout. There are still areas of thin ice around the lake and those areas are closed to fishing.

What is Orthodox Christianity?

As I am out and about in Los Alamos, wearing my long black robe (it’s called a cassock, by the way) and cross, I get this question quite often. “What are you?”

I am an Orthodox Priest. A trained and ordained pastor, chosen by a bishop to serve the people of, Job of Pochaiv Orthodox Church, my parish, and the people of Northern New Mexico.

Orthodox means “right worship” or “right belief.” In essence our beliefs have not deviated from those of the earliest Christian communities, and we have our roots

“Immediately ahead are seven years of great abundance in all the land of Egypt.

In today’s age communication has gone from postcards and letters to posts on a virtual wall and letters on a keyboard. Texting and email have become primary forms of communication among Americans and are the two most common forms of non-personal communication. According to a 2014 survey done by Gallup News, 73 percent of Americans say they send or receive texts on a daily basis.
