Close to the beginning
« on: September 16, 2011, 02:29:32 PM »
Haven't posted in awhile but I wanted to share that I recently had the first conversation with our priest about becoming Orthodox. He thought it may be Christmas Eve.

So after nearly 7 years of thought, study, and prayer, the beginning of mine and my family's journey is close!

Glory to God! May the Lord have mercy on you and your family throughout the catechumenate process.

Excellent news!

Glory be to God!

Glad to hear it!  Congratulations and Many Years!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
