I am curious.... as a Hispanic Orthodox Christian I wonder how many of us are there? Also, for other Puerto Rican Orthodox Christians - how do you deal with El Dia de Los Reyes and other cultural events and customs that have a root in Western theology. Does anyone know how many African Americans there are in the Orthodox Church (not counting Coptic or Ethiopian)?

I'm afraid I doubt anyone has answers to these number questions.

As for things like El Dia de los Reyes, it is not like it is against Orthodoxy, just confused on the date (on the Constantinople Calendar, it would be Dec. 25 IIRC.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

I found this on Ancient Faith Radio:
http://ancientfaith.com/podcasts/podup/illuminedheart/viva_ortodoxia (Viva Ortodoxia!)

Also sometime last year a Native group in South America became Orthodox.


If you need any more information about African Americans just let me know!
