I am a 23 year old Southern Baptist. My mother and father are die-hard Southern Baptists and I have become disenchanted with Evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity. I am very interested in becoming an Orthodox Christian, but the closest parish is far away from me (2 hours). I am also worried that if I convert, it will cause problems with my family.
Also, pray for me that I will gain courage to tell my parents about this decision, and that it won't cause any family problems.
I have been there. I am -- more or less -- still there, though I have become an Orthodox Christian in the interim. I will pray for you.
Lord, have mercy.
