New Here / Introducing Myself
« on: July 14, 2010, 03:09:37 AM »
Hello,

My name is Amete Menfes Kidus. I was baptized into the Ethiopian Orthodox Church with my husband and our children two years ago. I was raised in a Southern Baptist home, so Orthodoxy is still very new to me. Our Church is too far away to visit very often, so we attend a Greek Orthodox Church here in our city. I enjoy the Greek Orthodox Church, and since the Liturgy is in English, I am beginning to understand the Orthodox Faith more and more. I may have many questions that I hope you all can help me with over time.


Thank you.


Amete

Welcome Amete to the convert Issues Forum!

I hope that you will find the Convert Issues forum to be place where you as an inquirer may ask their questions about the Orthodox Faith in a safe and supportive forum.  WE try to provide an understanding of the basic teachings and practices of the Orthodox churches. WE try to keep our answers direct and simple with sources if possible,

For those who are converts, this forum is a safe place to discuss issues that arise after one converts in a safe and supportive forum without retribution or recrimination. WE try to avoid jurisdiction debates and you may find a the topic that will be split and sent the appropriate OC.Net forum to continue the discussion or debate if it strays from the guidelines of our Forum Purpose.

Again I want to welcome you warmly to the Convert Issues Forum and hope you will enjoy your time as a member here.

In Christ,
