Memories of the Orthodox basketball league live on in the hearts and minds of many men in our congregation. Growing up, playing on the league was a time-honored tradition steeped in pride and friendly competition between other Orthodox churches in the region. My husband Van recalls with fondness what a big part of his youth the league was for him and his friends. It's been many years since St. Dimitrie had a team in the league. Our son Ethan often talked of starting one, but with so few young people of the same age in our church family, it wasn't possible to put together a team......   {Click here to continue reading about Ethan's adventure}
