1 THE SOURCE March 2015 Issue # 3-15 HOLY TRINIT RINITY GREE REEK ORTHODO RTHODOX CATHEDRA THEDRAL CAMP HILL ILL,, PA Every Dad Can Be a Hero Make Father's Day a day to celebrate - for Dad and his kids. By Dr. Charles Fay Back to Practical Parenting With Fr. Kosta Self-esteem is well understood as a fruit of learning and bearing responsibility. Here are four principles that parents can easily grasp and keep in mind. These are drawn from Dr. Charles Fay, the guru of love and logic. By applying these teaching approaches, parents often experience a strong sense of delight and motivation. Step 1: Show your kids how to make mistakes and solve them. Great dads and moms don't try to be perfect. Instead, they allow their children to witness some of their small mistakes, show that they are human, and model what it looks like to be a good problem solver. For example, on a cool evening, a wise dad might purposefully leave his jacket at home and say to his kids, "Oops! I forgot to bring my jacket. I'm chilly. I sure am going to remember it next time!" Step 2: Give your kids plenty of opportunities to make "affordable" mistakes. Wise parents know that the consequences of mistakes grow more dangerous as their children grow older. Therefore, they hope and pray their youngsters will make plenty of small or "affordable" mistakes when they are young, when the "price tags" of these mistakes are small. For example, on another cool evening during the same week, dad might say to his kids, "We are leaving in 10 minutes. I'm going to treat you like big kids. How fun! You get to be in charge of remembering what you need to bring with you." Step 3: If a mistake is made, provide a strong "dose" of empathy and hold your child accountable. Believe it or not, the parents who are loved and respected by kids provide firm consequences for mistakes or misbehavior. The most loved and respected dads (and moms) provide a strong message of caring or empathy before they deliver consequences. If a child forgets to bring his or her jacket, a thinking parent might say very sincerely, "This is so sad. You forgot your jacket, and now you're chilly. We can't drive all the way home to get it. Hang in there. I love you." Step 4: Give your children the same task again. The very next day, the same parent might say, "We are leaving in 10 minutes. You again get to be in charge of remembering what you need to bring with you." When parents give their children responsibility for the same task again, without nagging or reminding them of their previous mistakes, they send a very powerful message: "You are smart enough to learn from your mistakes!" When I look back on my own examples of teaching and encouraging my own children, it is the ones that point the way but leave room for the child to decide & achieve, that seem the best by far! May you find your own enrichment through the vigilant and wise messages you give to those who our Lord entrusts to you! +Fr. Kosta Petrogeorge

If you have a professional reason to carry a phone for emergencies, keep it on mute, not vibrate, and sit near the exit so that leaving for an emergency will not be a distraction to others. Otherwise, turn off your phone before entering the sanctuary.
4 THE SOURCE MARCH 2015 Page 4 A NOTE FROM THE PARISH COUNCIL Dear Parishioners: As I write this, Penn State is holding its 46 th Annual Dance Marathon. Thon as it is known, raised over $13 million dollars for pediatric cancer in It s the largest student-run philanthropy in the world and has raised over $100 million dollars since 1977, half of which has been raised in the last 5 years. Ironically, this event started around the same time we started our Festival. How is it that Thon has continued to thrive and grow to become what it is today? What inspires thousands of students to dance for 46 hours consecutively without sleeping or even sitting down? I believe it s all about their commitment to their mission. The 15,000 students that organize and participate in this event truly believe they are helping children beat cancer. It s that simple. I would like to take this opportunity to get you to think about what our Festival could be. If we reduce it to a fundraiser to balance our books and pay our bills, then we will continue to struggle to get the commitment we need from Parishioners in order for our Festival to thrive. I d like to challenge each and every one of you to think about the following each time you hear the word Festival as it relates to our Church: Our goal has always been and should remain that we can operate our Church on the basis of Stewardship alone. There is no reason why this cannot be the case. None. If you want the Festival to have more meaning, start by increasing your stewardship. Every dollar you increase in stewardship means that more of our Festival proceeds can go to other worthwhile purposes. Working together on such an endeavor can be the basis for lifelong bonds and friendships within our community. Come to help with a glad and grateful heart. It s an opportunity to share our faith and traditions with our guests. You never know who you might reach. If we think of it as a means to help others, we are doing Christ s work. As a fundraiser, it s only helping ourselves. I know that at some point, almost each and every one of you help in some way. For that, I thank you. On a more practical basis, I d like to ask you to take the next step in your support of our Festival by: Signing up. Indicate your willingness to help so we know where we will need to make calls to get extra help. Use either the online Signup Genius from Sam Kolokithas or the signup sheets in the social hall. Encouraging someone else to help. Find someone who has drifted from the Church or someone who maybe isn t involved as much as they could be. Remembering that the Festival is not just 3 days in May. There are preparations that take place for 3 months in advance. Also, the 3 days leading up to the Festival weekend and the 3 days after the Festival are also times in which your help is needed. Sunday 2/15 was Judgment Sunday. Part of the Gospel Reading from Matthew that Sunday reads: Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.' Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?' And the King will answer them, 'Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me. I wish all of you a blessed Lenten season. Yours in Christ. George J. Spanos

19 THE SOURCE MARCH 2015 Page 19 Getting to know your fellow Parishioners An Interview by Fr. Kosta of Tiffany Sites. In the future Tiffany herself will be offering occasional interviews of parishioners for our Source! Q. Begin by telling me something that is fun in your life & that takes up some of your time. My dog Vinnie! He is an amazing communicator. He has his fun ways of letting me know exactly what he wants. If he wants to go for a walk, he spins his legs backwards; or if he s hungry he ll park himself at the refrigerator. So you know where he stands on things! Unfortunately sometimes that s not easy, however; like when he grits his teeth when he knows that I m leaving to express his unmitigated disapproval. But he s a special pet, a Yorkshire terrier. He loves people and he reminds me that there is something beautiful about being gregarious. He especially loves my mother, Cathy Kastanas, who helps watch Vinnie quite often. And Vinnie takes advantage of her. He knows that she will hold him almost constantly, and he takes her up on it. But he s a great pet; although it is hard when I have to leave, looking at his face (and his teeth!), so I exit quickly less I be overcome by guilt! Q. What is something else that occupies some of your time? I volunteer at Agia Sofia Coffee House, and I love it. It s a great atmosphere; and the people are wonderful. I have met great friends who I get together with. And it s the case that when you smile at the people, they almost always smile back! So it has been really rewarding. There s just a great feeling there. And it s fun to read the positive sentiments that people often put in the comment-box. Being associated with Agia Sofia somehow brings fuller blessings for my life. Down the street for the coffee house there is a man at the parking lot that often gives me a discount in what he charges me to leave my car. One day before picking up my car to leave, I had brought him some fresh spanakopita from the coffee shop. He was so grateful; he let me know in the happiest sense that I had made his day. That small exchange in turn made me feel alive, human. To me, those little things are what life is really about! Also I would say that being around positive spirits helps all aspects of our spiritual life. If one lives around positive people, I find that it is easier to let go of resentment or disappointment. I have a friend that is truly free from resentment, and they lift up my spirits! Q. Do you have a favorite book that you read just for fun? Feng Shui Living. This is about a subject that I think is fun, namely, the thinking out of how to place objects or how to altar your environment so that your life feels fresh. So, you could say that it has to do with interior design. And speaking of environment, I have also enjoyed working with plants and flowers, which I learned from my mother. We have a long-time specific tradition in my family of growing Christmas Cactus, which is a plant which springs out little Christmas flower buds. Q. What activities or hobbies do you enjoy doing most when you have the time? I enjoy traveling when I have the opportunity, also skiing and swimming. As to where I would like to travel, I would love to see England, Scotland. It is completely out of my culture range, but I love to learn from people who have very different backgrounds. And in particular I would love to see the London Fog!
20 THE SOURCE MARCH 2015 Page 20 Another activity that I enjoy and that takes up a lot of my time is taking care of my pet dog. Pets require a lot of attention and time, but they give so much back! Q. What is one way that you might describe yourself? A fun description would be adventurous! When I travel with people I am the first to take off. I like to meet the locals, find out what they enjoy, and learn something from their culture. Often times taking the time to talk to people who you don t know ends up bringing unexpected blessings! Q. What is one area or one event in your life that particularly tested your faith; and could you give some detail about it? I have been challenged in dealing with the death of somebody I loved very much, namely, my grandmother, Yiayia Helen Veronikis. I was very close to both her and my grandfather Steve. When I was young, Yiayia would often be at my school bus stop to meet me after school and bring me to her home to stay until my mother would come to get me. Yiayia and I would cook and laugh together, and we would often scheme how we could get my mother to prolong my stay at Yiayia s; for example, by cooking lots of food and then trying to convince my mother that it is really only appropriate that she stays to eat some of the food that we prepared so much of! Yiayia was a character, had a great sense of humor, and left lots of good memories. When I was older and my grandfather died, I moved in with Yiayia Helen to keep her company, and the memories just continued. There are even smells or aromas that linger to this day in the house which remind me vividly of how my grandfather would tend to his rose bushes- such as, the vivid aroma of rose bushes! Having moved in with Yiayia, I remember one time I told a friend that I would watch their very large German Shepherd dog named Joko for a few days; and I kept the dog inside the house. One afternoon when I was home I heard the sound of loud clinking (like from a can) coming from Yiayia s room, where I knew she was resting. I was wondering what all the noise was so I went to her room to see if she was all right. When I turned to look in her room, this very massive large German Shepherd dog had it s paws on the bed and was on the verge of jumping onto Yiayia s bed. Why so? Because Yiayia had been summoning the dog to her room and tossing it hard-candy! At that point when I entered the room, Yiayia didn t have any candy left, but it was as if Joko wanted to verify that detail! All which Yiayia could do at that point was to scream for help! I arrived just in time and pulled the dog back down off the bed and out of the room. And I remember that once Joko was safely settled down, both Yiayia and I just laughed and laughed hysterically about that scene. When Yiayia Helen died I was so grieved, my world felt like it was turned upside down. I felt challenged to redefine a number of things. In some ways I am still working all that out. But I try to recall her great faith. He loved the Lord, she loved the Church, she loved the priests. And I have a comfort in trusting that she is in the hands of the Lord Jesus Christ. I find liberation in not having to know everything, and I just try to tie my experiences & memories of Yiayia to the person of Christ. And in the end, I think this has made me all the more aware of people who have similar problems as I, or sometimes, worse problems; & who need extra compassion. Q) Do you have any favorite Quotes or principles you sometimes recall or try to live by? Yes and one of my favorites is: Reserve time to do something relaxing and enjoyable each day
