    By the way, I forgot to thank you for such a thoughtful response, even though there's no such thing as Christian Horror labeled Christian Slasher category.

    Slasher movies are to Horror what McDonalds is to haute cuisine.

    Flannery O’Connor does some fine Christian Horror, as well.

     

    And “That Hideous Strength” the last book in C.S. Lewis’s Space Trilogy, while technically Sci Fi, I think could be classified as horror, too.

    C.S. Lewis’s space trilogy, especially “Out of the Silent Planet,” is great.

    How are you doing now, BK?

    Hi, all. My wife’s surgery went well and she is back at home now. She will probably start radiation treatments in a few weeks and continue them for about six weeks. Thanks to everyone for their prayers.

  4. I haven't posted much in a while, since my wife and daughter joined me overseas in Europe, but I thought I'd update the group on recent events. I just had major surgery two weeks ago, followed by a week's hospitalization. Bad enough, but it went well and is over now, although I will be recovering for months to come. My wife was diagnosed with early-stage cancer a few weeks ago, as well, and has yet to undergo surgery, so I'm asking for prayers for her. Both of these issues should have been caught while we were still in the USA, but our medical provider there has been practically shut down most of this year due to the novel Coronavirus, so here we are.

  5. We finally made it to Europe despite the pandemic and hope to ride out COVID-19 here until a vaccine arrives (the country we’re in is handling the pandemic relatively well). We’re just in temporary housing at the moment and everything is still pretty chaotic; we’re looking forward to things settling down and getting back into a routine soon. Take care and stay safe.

    So I suppose the concern is that once the Hagia Sofia has ceased to be a museum, it will be less accessible to people of other faiths (other than Islam)?

    It's more than that. It's symbolic of Turkey rejecting its modern-era secularism and, instead, embracing a past that included the genocide of its Christians.

    3D Hagia Sophia

    At least we have scans and virtual tours.  Don't have to quarantine to visit!

    The most interesting thing the scans (not the link I gave) reveal are the Christian mosaics and paintings that are painted over now. 

    This probably means the end of any restoration of the mosaics. I guess Erdogan is trying to score points domestically.

    Let us know the results. We're praying.

    They said I can't get tested since I'm not currently sick and the antibody tests are in short supply. So, I'm stuck with a 14-day self quarantine, unfortunately. Thanks for asking.

  9. I'm back in the USA now and trying to get the COVID-19 test since I was sick while overseas in March, starting about two weeks after a flight within the Middle East. I don't have any symptoms now, though, so it would have to be the test for antibodies, which is harder to get. I hope I had it already and am immune now.
