Spent basically all day working on this. Pretty proud of myself!
…that is, until it started to dawn on me that my scaling is way off. I did all the calculations myself (bad idea), and then checked them. Everything seemed to work. The scale (supposed to be 1:20), as I’m realizing, was off. I still can’t figure out how I screwed up but I know I did.
The pride has turned to a feeling of intense self-loathing because of all the wasted time on something that is crap anyway.
At least the interior looks good in this flawed scale!
70s Film Alphabet, right that’s it. I am done!

Christmas is called the Nativity of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in the Byzantine Tradition. The coming our Great God and Saviour Jesus Christ (Titus 2.13; 2 Peter 1.1) is a seminal event for those of us of the Byzantine Christian faith, for in the incarnation God joined his divinity to our humanity, raising us up to be like Him.
The process of Theosis, i.e., divinization, which is so central to Byzantine theology, is possible only because God became human, making it possible for humans to become God. This is the teaching of the Bible and the Fathers (2 Peter 1.4). In fact, some of the Church Fathers believed that God still would have become man and dwelt among us even if Adam and Eve had not sinned.
We in the Byzantine tradition while not denying the fall, have an optimistic view of humanity, we believe that all of humanity can be divinized by the grace of God. All humanity bears the image of God, and has not lost it; it has only been marred by sin (Genesis 1.26, 27; James 3.9). By seeing God become a human, we look forward to our own divinization. The Nativity is a time for us to celebrate our divine sonship (John 1.12; Romans 8.14-17; Hebrews 2.13-14).
Thus, during the Feast of the Nativity, and all year long, we Byzantine Christians affirm the sayings of such Church fathers as Ireneaos, Cyril, Athanasios, and others
