I have just registered
« on: July 05, 2011, 12:42:02 PM »
I have been reading your discussions for a few weeks and they have proved interesting and helpful.  Poppy invited me, we know each other from another forum. I see Iggy has joined as well :~)

I used to be a member of a thriving charismatic church for many years and now i do not attend any church. I have visited the Greek Orthodox church once, which was lovely.

I hope i can be as much a blessing to you all (with God's help) as you have been to me in your communications with each other.

Welcome to the forum!

Glad you joined. Poppy has turned out to be quite the recruiter haha. Welcome  :)

Dear Dyhn,

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,
Thomas
