A bleg from Mark Shea's blog:

A reader asks:

I was wondering if, at some point in the future, you might use your blog to do me a favor. I am a single thirty-something year old in the New York City area, and I'm a New York native. I've got a really lovely circle of Christian friends here, not to mention my family all round me. My parish has one of those awesome, "Random Lay Groups" that were discussed on your blog not too long ago, and joining that group made a HUGE difference to me when I first started to take my Faith seriously a few years ago in this great unchurched city.

Anyhow, the point of all this is that I am moving to Burlington, Vermont in the next few months, and I've been doing some advance parish scouting, and I don't see anything at any of the Burlington/Williston/Essex Junction parishes like a young(ish) adults group, or random-lay group. It's a little daunting, the thought of moving there and being alone in my Faith for a while.

So that brings me to my favor/question. You've got a wide audience, and I was wondering if any of your readers were from the Burlington area and knew of an orthodox parish where I could join a young(ish) adult group or something like it. I'm not averse to starting one in the Burlington area if I must, but maybe there's one already thriving that just isn't being publicized in all the bulletins and event calendars I've been looking over. All the parish ministries seem very focused on senior citizens and families.

I'm sure I don't need to clarify, but I don't mean a "singles-only" or dating-type group!

Two suggestions:

First, watch my comboxes on this thread in case somebody from the Burlington/Williston/Essex, Vermont area is reading and can point you to a good group.

Second, go to Intentional Disciples, the blog of the St. Catherine of Siena Institute and ask somebody there if they have any contacts in the Burlington/Williston/Essex, Vermont area who might be of help.

P.S. Hi reader

Our lay group was "Nameless" but I love the idea of being "Random" too!

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time. A major Amtrak line in regular daily use by Americans is the Acela Express line, running between Boston and Washington, D. Financial and managerial accounting principles.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama. My BF and I both agree that his son could not move into my home (which would ultimately be our home), so I am left to wait.
