I could use some advice from some fellow Christians.
I have been contemplating converting to Orthodoxy and I feel in my heart it is the right church, although my wife is not on the same page. She is RC and she does not care for all of the theology of the RCC and what has changed over the years. She just likes going to church because she has gone all her life and she has stong family ties to it. We have never been much to discuss religion much, and it has definatly hampered our ability to do it now. I feel like I cannot fully raise a daughter in a church where I say yes the church is right on this matter but on this other matter it is not because of ....... So I asked my wife tonight about going to a Vespers service and she obliged for my sake.
She has mentioned she WILL not change churches even though I have mentioned a few key points about the Orthodox and RC Churches. There are many reasons I would convert to Orthodoxy, and the Only reason I would stay RC is to keep the unity of my family and appease my wife. Although I feel spirtually blah in the RCC.
I do not know what to do. I want to know that everything I have learned of the Orthodox Church is because of the Will of God, but I also know that the way my wife and I met and married was definatly the Will of God. It isn't right for a family to be separted in churches. I have been praying for years that God would bring us to a church and I almost feel that the Orthodox chuch is the Church. Though, the nearest church is two hours away. I wish I knew what God wanted for us? This has been an ongoing difficult process for us. Any advice. Thanks, Caleb
