My parents never forced me to attend their church, but they were pretty angry when I had my born again experience.
For months at a time I did end up going to church with them and I just set up a prayer area in my room. I also talked to people from the church a few times a week, wrote e-mails, played my worship CDs and went to Catholic Mass on Sundays.
I would definitely talk to your priest and pray about it. I was a college freshman when I became a charismatic Christian (LOL no such thing as converting!) and I admittedly did defy them on it. I didn't ask for their permission and just went to the church when I was back at college.
I don't know. I really don't want to encourage a child disobeying his or her parents (although God knows I've done that with my own spiritual life
) but I do
feel like my relationship with God overrides my relationship with them. (I might have told them this several times....I recommend that you DON'T take that approach.)
Pray about it and talk to your priest. You are over 18, and yes, you are in their own house...I don't know. I am okay with curfews, chores and any type of rules (I moved back briefly before I got married), but I had a big issue when my parents tried to interfere with my church life.
I DO understand how you don't want to miss Sundays at the Orthodox Church, though! I'm a new inquirer and I throw a fit when my husband has to work on Sunday morning.
Lord have mercy! Best of luck.
