We touch the open hand on the chest in the Macedonian Church too. It's rare if someone doesn't

Hey! Newish here.

Single as well, 26F. It can be hard, especially when all you're friends are married and starting families.

Welcome to the forum, LauraE!

It won't be hard now after this post, ask Mor Ephrem to give you more storage space in your PM box.

5. And I do not feel any voation to the monastery. Futhermore, my priest, that used to think that maybe being a nun is my path, now considers that's not an option for me; so only marriage. But frankly spekaing, it's hard to not loose hope regarding this.

What about just remaining single and celibate? Is that an option for you?

She should be neither.

That's up to her. It sounds like she wants to marry, but things are simply not working out. Perhaps there's a reason for that, idk.

It was a compliment, not spiritual advice.

Umm, there's plenty of Protestant art in many different mediums.

Well, due to the ban on visual arts, some protestants specially in the lutheran world, dedicated to music, Bach comes to my mind and several others that composed christmas concerts and hymns.

Nowadays there is a lot of theater, specially in evangelical youth groups, and of course, the jesusy rock/hipsters band, or worse, the denominations made out from overproduced concerts that sheepsteal the youth to mega churches (Hillsong and others come to my mind).

I find quite curious how lots of evangelicals, not all of course, but a lot nowadays, try to avoid completely the appearance of religion, so they made their religious service to look like some sort of TED talk, a motivational lecture or some sort of new iphone presentation.
