Just wanted to see the results.

I'm counting myself under Eastern Catholic, though my "Rite change" has yet to be approved.

Eastward tilted RC here as well... but the fence seems right for now. Working on praxis before I ponder the question, and learning more about theology on both sides (enough to keep me in the same place for a couple of lifetimes).

In love with both... longing for the first thousand years!

I guess so. It certainly must be a work of God. Although I have a friend in the UK Antiocheans who also converted from Brethrenism - I didn't know him then.

I think that it may be because PB's can be very serious people and with the lack of a coherent theology in present day PBism it is likely that there will be earnest seeking after truth. And the theme of the Church is important in classical PBism so that, as in my case, you end up stumbling over Orthodoxy. I also learned a lot from Roman Catholicism and even Anglicanism as well on the way though I never joined any other church.
