Ok, I have decided to attend the Divine liturgy at Sunday.
I look forward to it, but have to admit that am a bit anxious about the whole thing too as I haven't been to an Orthodox Church ever before...
Is there anything I need to keep in mind upon attending?
And how do I approach the priest afterwards?
Does he walk into the sanctuary after the liturgy and all I have to do is to walk up to him or is it like I have to walk to his office?
I'm a bit introverted so this isn't easy for me to be honest...
Feedback is highly appreciated:)
Here is a guide that many churches are using.
It may also help you to understand that there will likely be no distinct stops in between the chanting and singing, except for the homily that comes in the middle of the service right after the Gospel reading. My priest likens it to wading out into gentle ocean waves; it is far better to let them wash over you rather than for you to fight to keep your head above the water.
