As Grammateus (Secretary) of Hellenion, a non-profit religious organization with 501(c)(3) status, I have many duties. This includes, but isn’t limited to, processing new member applications. That duty involves several tasks. One of my predecessors started a tradition that has become my favorite task as Grammateus, and that is personalizing our welcome kit and sending it to new members.
I was delighted yesterday when I saw that my new friend, Jota, had posted pictures on Facebook of the arrival of his welcome kit and documented his excitement opening it. This was especially grand considering that he resides in Brazil and is the brother to another member in Brazil. I am kindling quiet anticipation of new demoi (congregations) emerging all over the globe.
With his permission, I have included his pictures and comments below to give all of you would-be-applicants an idea of what you can expect to receive when you first join.
We all felt a sense of community sharing this experience – the sacred Hellenic act of exchange and gift-giving.
