1. Saying Goodbye to a Great Staffer: Edial
    Please help me wish Edial a wonderful blessed journey as he steps down from CF staff.
    His footprint on our ministry will always remain but his presence will be greatly missed. I'm sure he will come around as a member to all his favorite forums but for now please join me at his profile page to wish him many thanks for the years of service he has brought to us all.
    All of us on CF staff will miss him dearly!!

    Hi there :wave:

    The lovely Mrs. and I need to know how to say "Christ is Born" in Greek and Russian (or- I suppose Slavonic.) The first person to answer gets all 63 of my blessings :)

    Thanks,
    Rdr. Moses and Anonykat

    Serbs would say:

    Празник Божји, Христос се роди
    (Praznik Božji, Hristos se rodi)
    Greeting: The Holiday of God, Christ is born.


    Ваистину се роди
    (Vaistinu se rodi).
    Answer: In truth He is born.

    modern greek uses an older type of the verb so it goes: Χριστός γεννάται

    especially when using it as a greeting.

    Hi Moses,

    In Arabic:
    Al-Maseehu wulida famajjedouh!
    (Christ is born, glorify Him!)

    In Greek:
    Christos Gennatai ! Doxasate!
    (Christ is born! Give glory!)

    or

    Christos etexthi! Alithos etexthi!
    (Christ has been born! He has truly been born!)

    In Russian:
    Kristos rozhdaetsya! Slav'te ego!
    (Christ is born! He is, truly!)

    In Serbian:
    Hristos se Rodi! Voistinu se Rodi!
    (Christ is born! Indeed He is Born!)

    In Slavonic:
    Christos razhdayetsya! Slavite yoho!
    (Christ is born! Glorify Him!)

    Many years,

    Neil
