Hi all...my name is David, I'm 43, live in VA. I have been lurking this board fo ra couple of weeks now, gettting the feel of it.
I'm currently Episcopalian, interested in Eastern liturgy and spirituality. I'm also interested in monasticism and the desert fathers; I thought learning more about Eastern Christianity might  help me understand the ancient fathers. Don't be surprised if I bug y'all to death w/ questions Huh!

Welcome, Crucifer.

Beware of the answers you obtain here. You might be better off learning about Eastern Christianity through books.

One would be wise to double check and verify any information he gets on this or any other web site.

Good advice..I am reading The Orthodox Way (Kallistos Ware) and have visited a local Orthodox church- also feel that seeing how Orthodox actaully worship and live thier lives is as important as reading books and info from websites. Wink

EXCELLENT attitude; I think the best way, bar none, to learn about eastern spirituality is to attend services.  Also, I really like Way by HG Bp KALLISTOS.  It was the book that, more than any other, caused me to realize I needed to take the Church's claims seriously.

How do you like it so far?

Welcome, Crucifier
