Yesterday was a beauty of the day in the Bay. It was one of the happy accidents in the adventures of my life. Last Friday I went to the yard to see the A's play Detroit and on the scoreboard they flashed if you bring your ticket to Greek Festival admission is free. So, I went and glad I did. I do not know much about Greek culture and the Greek Orthodox Christian Church, yesterday I learned so much.
One of the first things I did was (even with the great food smells and music going on) is go inside the church and hear Fr. Nebojsa Pantic speak about the church. I found it quite interesting and found the inside of the church. Fr. Nebojsa was very kind to answer my questions about the Greek Orthodox Christian Church.
