I just read a post in here where LizaSymonenko spoke about traditions in the Church that seem to be part of normal life for many cradle Orthodox, see here:http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,57780.msg1107921.html#msg1107921
Things like this make me go "Oooh, oooh!" :
Your text books won't teach you about what to put in your basket to get blessed on Pascha, what it symbolizes or what to do with it
I started an email list at our Church to try to glean some of this information and hoping that maybe it would take hold in some of us converts that were looking for it. It hasn't really taken off yet.
I would love to absorb more of these things into my life.
Does anybody want to start a post with these things to share?
LOL, that was an answer to my question. I loved her answer, but I wanted to re-ask every single question!
I had hoped to get back to it after Pascha - just too little time this week to be asking extra questions.
I'm glad you did this thread though.
