<blockquote>Published on May 13, 2015
there were five major Patriarchs of the Roman Empire: Rome, Constantinople, Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem.
By 661, Alexandria, Antioch, and Jerusalem diminished by their permanent conquest by the Islamic Arabs.
Letting go, and letting God, still holds challenge.
A lifetime of learning hasn’t made it easier,
Just more imperative,
As my way just gets in my way.
Like a little lamb, I follow,
Though the way be set by trial ,
My shepherd walks before.
In hallowed steps
I plant my feet.
Surety and Covenant abiding
Your Way, my way, forevermore.
