My wife Julie made this cake to celebrate the baptism and confirmation of the world’s four newest Orthodox Christians, the Dantin family, who became full members of the St. John the Theologian Orthodox Mission today. A church cake for our church family, and Krispy Kreme donuts because HEY, it’s Ortho-DIXIE!

Here are our dear, dear friends the Dantins during the ceremony this morning, with the mighty Duke in the foreground. What a day in the life of our little church community here in the country!:
