Why do so many Orthodox churches in America have pews and an organ. Maybe not as many have an organ, but many have pews. I understand that people sometimes have to sit during the service, but does everyone in the church have to have a pew? If you go to places like Greece or Russia, many churches never have a place to sit, but they still get on fine. Also when there are pews, how can you prostrate without bumping your head?
My old Orthodox Church had an organ, and did a Byzantine liturgy. Sorry, but an organ and a Byzantine liturgy? I know the church has more to worry about than having organs, but in Orthodox tradition their are usually no instruments in the service; not to mention the fact it sounds terrible!
