thank you to all for your well wishes and prayers! yes, it did go well and I have to tell you that I was blown away! It seems that Orthodox sing everything and it's beautiful. Also, I sensed such a "sense of the holy". I have read on blogs that in the Orthodox Church, 'it's not about you' so while the service wasn't "seeker sensitive" people did talk to me after the service. A reader named John and his wife were especially friendly and they introduced me to the priest. They gave me an icon calendar with all the readings.
I must go back again. I love how in worship the whole body is involved, all the senses. Smells, bowing, sight (looking at icons as they pray)...it sure is different from singing a few hymns and an hour long sermon!
