Akathist to Jesus Christ Emmanuel
« on: December 15, 2009, 11:39:14 PM »
Hi everyone!  My sister and her boyfriend are coming into town for Christmas - and I was thinking about inviting them to one of our services.  I know they have some Christmas services at my family's church on the weekend - but my parish is having a short service for the Akathist to Jesus Christ on Friday.  As I've never been to one of the Akathist to Jesus Christ services, do you recommend it as a decent service for a Protestant to attend?  I've been in the Orthodox Church since mid-2007, but she hasn't come yet to visit - so I want to make sure her first visit (if she agrees to come) is something that is helpful.  Thanks!
