At this point, I'm mostly basing my decisions on which church to attend by the feeling of individual parishes, not solely by jurisdictional affiliation.
Even though I respect you for your personal decisions, the above is how it should ALWAYS be for any Orthodox. Converts especially should be thinking this way as to not develop a political mindset. Remember, everyone, the praxis is the most important part.
I think there is a certain danger in seeking out a parish that "feels right," Orthodox or otherwise. It seems to me it is a reflection of the "What's in it for me?" attitude. I think that our primary purpose in attending church is to participate in Liturgy - the "common work" of the people of the Church.
Fr. Thomas Hopko wrote "The Divine Liturgy is the common action of Orthodox Christians officially gathered to constitute the Orthodox Church. It is the action of the Church assembled by God in order to be together in one community to worship, to pray, to sing, to hear God's word, to be instructed in God's commandments, to offer itself with thansgiving in Christ to God the Father, and to have the living experience of God's eternal kingdom through communion with the same Christ Who is present in his people by the Holy Spirit." Hopko does not say "It's a place that makes me feel warm and gushy."
That being said, though, it is nice for the parish to feel "right" right off the bat, because then we can "bank" those good feelings for when the times get rough and lees warm/fuzzy. Trust me when I say that things will not always be rosy in your parish. That Priest you think is the cat's meow will get transferred to Walla-Walla, and a new priest with an entirely different personality will replace him, much to your dismay. Or, a new convert or somebody who moved to your quaint village of Nowheresville will start attending your church - a person who, as you get to know her, will annoy you to absolutely no end. And on top of it all, she will befriend everybody at church, leaving you to wonder "Am I the only one who can't stand that cow?"
The point is, when the going gets rough, will you divorce yourself from the church (or even the Orthodox Church) to go find another church where you feel warm and cozy again? Or, will you stick it out and make things work, like you should be doing with your marriage at home? Remember - if you are a convert to Orthodoxy, you probably went church-shopping and endured a number of church "divorces" before arriving at Holy Orthodoxy. You divorced before - who's to say you won't do it again?
Be vigilant and perservere! Fight the good fight! That's my prayer for you all today! May you endure, persevere, and triumph over periods of despair, and show true determination and dedication to God and His will.
Finally, a word from G.K. Chesterton, who remarked: "He who marries the spirit of the age soon finds himself a widower."
