Hello All,

I have found my way over here with the help of some friends on another site.

I am Anglican and I studying Theology at Uni.  This last semester we had a Greek Orthodox priest as lecturer and his manner impressed me so much that I attended a Greek Orthodox Church and found that I really enjoyed the Divine Liturgy.

As a result I had several conversation with said priest and am now enrolling in a Orthodox Theological College with the approval of my own Anglican priest.  I am following the path as the present uni course does not pay sufficient attention to the theology of the patristic Fathers, apophatic theology and the part mystery plays in the liturgy.  It is not that I am necessarily thinking of converting but I do think, from my study thus far, that Orthodoxy does hold a deeper appreciation of the Divine Mystery we might call God.

So I will be prowling the boards picking up morsels that fall from the Orthodox table.  And who knows the future?

Lord, in your mercy.

Hi Wayseer,

Welcome to the board, and to Orthodox theology in general!  Great to see others from Australia. Smiley

I hope that you'll find plenty of 'morsels' in these parts - or, at least, people who are willing to share where more can be found.

Again: welcome!

Welcome, wayseer!

Would it be a great breach of privacy to tell me where you are studying and which priest's lecturing so impressed you? PM would be lovely.

Welcome to the Forum!

You'll find many "crumbs" of wisdom falling from this table...and if you are watchful, sometimes entire loaves will come your way!

Once again, welcome and enjoy your stay!
