Greetings from Toronto, Canada my fellow Christians! My name is George Samaras and I finally found an online Orthodox Christian community that is active. I am interested in Orthodox Christianity as I was born and raised in the Greek Orthodox Church. Despite my recent absence from Church, I try to follow the faith as best as I can. I have recently been conducting more in-depth reading about Orthodox Christianity on Wikipedia so I could get a broader view of the faith as opposed to the more general views instilled in me from my Church and my family. Anyways, I will do my best to be online and post but I am a student so school is always calling. I look forward to meeting you all, take care!

I think the French may be on to something here.
