Hey guys, I came to this board mainly for conversations with Oriental Orthodox, whose Church I adore. The EO/OO closeness was the reason I chose to become Orthodox rather than Catholic; if two Churches split for 1500 years would remain the same, even while they were hostile, it probably means they were preserving the same tradition. My closest friend at college is a Coptic guy and I go to his Church often. I was accepted into the OCA in December.
