Y'all must be adrenaline junkies!. I wish you well on what may be your last "first" Liturgy.
Hey! I never thought of that. Spiritual adrenaline junkies.
Thank you very much.
You might tuck a scarf in your hand bag. In many Orthodox churches women cover their heads.
I'd also say: Allow yourself to be teachable, to be a beginner. Let others give to you. Your turn will come to give back, God willing. As long as we remain beginners, the opportunities to grow in faith are boundless. As soon as we become experts, it's all over. The opposite of faith isn't doubt; it is certainty.
