Wow, thank you, that is such a compliment. My dad is a big fan of yours, and I aspire to one day write as fluidly, captivatingly, and beautifully as you. melkam fasika!
Wow that's a true pic !!!!!! Love it !!! MELKAM FASIKA
Wonq,I'm a big fan. Melkam Fasika to you too.
Wonq: Hearty wishes for "Melkam Fassika"A friend just arrrived from Ethiopia. I Quintal of teff +500.00, a Kilo of beef +35.00 akilo of butter out of reach. Complemets of bird flue chicken prices have dropped from Birr +40.00 (during holidays) to birr 7.00.How I wish I could say to all Ethiopians in Ethiopia "melkam fasika" without sounding preposterous.
Melkam Fasika to you too! But Lately I am having difficulties thinking about Ethiopia without a religion,particularly the tewahido orthodox one. you see I am not a believer and also think the Eth. church has been pulling the country back to ignorance. Just look at the( wonq's) picture!It's not a happy one, is it?
Melkam Fasika Wonq,Thank you for the beautiful picture. Sorry Abebech but I can actually feel the warmth and beautiful light/spirit just from looking at it.
How could Abebech conceive the great stride Ethiopian Tewahdo Church and its followers are making the last several years if she is outside looking in? Even from a healthy distance, one cannot but be impressed by the mushrooming of a whole new generation of church leaders who strive to impart the teachings of christ from an angel that befits the challenges of the time.As very many believe, theology is not static, even during the early times of my favorite apostle, St Paul. While I am at it, I strongly recommend a great historical biogaphy by a notable historian, H.B. morton "In The Foot Steps of St. Paul" Ouch! Should have been more careful with that doro-wot and Kurt!
Melkam FasikaRegarding Abebech Gemeda's comment and Kuchiye's response: I agree more with the former, what great strides are we talking about? The corruption of an ancient religion by soldier-priests and politiking deacons has estranged many of the Orthodox faith...If viewed as objectively as possible- all religion in great doses is dangerous and short-sighted, we're mere mortals with not a fraction of an idea about what is going on around us
