the EOC is...interesting.
Yet, I owe my Orthodoxy to them! My home parish is an OCA parish that began as EOC. Our first priest (EOC) led us into the OCA, and he himself was received some years ago by Vladyka Dimitri and ordained a priest. He remained our parish priest for some time, and is now working at OCMC (I believe he sits on the Board of Directors, IIRC).
Without that parish, beginning as an EOC parish and later being accepted into the OCA, I probably would have never found Orthodoxy!
