Katherine, were you there this morning?? I was hoping to meet you, but I had to leave right after they introduced my wife and I to the parish.
Anyways, I really enjoyed the liturgy there. That was my first DL entirely in English. My wife came with me, and shes not quite as comfortable with the whole Orthodox thing yet, so we kind of just stood in the back and watched for the most part. It was really funny though when the usher at the door invited us to receive a blessing from the priest during communion. When he held the chalice up for my wife, she had no idea she was supposed to kiss it. I was laughing on the inside, because she looked kinda awkward... Ha!
But I was relieved to hear that she kinda liked the liturgy overall. Her quote was, in a positive tone, "I actually didnt hate it!" When I took her to vespers at the Greek parish, she didnt care for it at all. Im still not going to rush anything with her, but I was glad to hear that she had a positive experience.
I do plan to attend when I can on Sundays (which wont be often right now) but Im going to try and go on Saturdays instead.
