Right now you should be learning the basics of the faith as an inquirer, not engaging in questions about liturgical rubrics!
That is good advice. I just loved the standing arrangement and the pewless church.
Each parish will vary in their answer. Part of the spice of Orthodoxy.
I am really enjoying learning the theology and the echacatogical structure of the one true faith. I have also studied the history a bit. I am not worried. I am just getting my feet wet. But I wanted to understand more about the spice of Orthodoxy. I realise we have one faith but I was not sure how each jurisdiction varied and how much.
I also just finished reading two books that the priest gave me.
Becoming Orthodox A Journey to the Ancient Christian Faith by Peter Gillquist
Come and See Encountering the Orthodox Church by Theodore Bobosh
There was some things that are not correct with the second book as it is a bit dated.
The first book was really good. I more or less started to become acquanted with the Antiochian jurisdiction as well as others journey into the faith. My curiosity got started and I wanted to know a bit more about the nuances and styles of other jurisdictions. I just find the whole thing fascinating.
But nonetheless I found my home in the Orthodox church and take the faith very seriously. I enjoy the theology and form of worship immensely. The path and way to personal spiritual salvation in the Orthodox faith I find is the best. I intend to continue regardless of the jurisdictional and parish differences.
