Title: Telling family about conversion
Post by: Anastasia1 on September 12, 2012, 09:45:45 PM
My family knows I have been going to Orthodox churches off and on. They don't know I am getting chrismated soon. I am not going to sit down and be all serious about them knowing, but if it comes up, I really want them to be ok with it and not question me too much about it.

(You went the Miaphysite route, right?)

Yes. It's easier and goes over better for several reasons.

(please tell me how it went when you talk to them, I'm in almost the same situation.)

I was just going to keep telling them that I am going to x or y church on Sundays (because I live with them) and beyond that let them bring it up.

I will pray that the Holy Spirit may inspire you with the best words.

I told my brother, and he seemed to think that it's cool.
