Roman Catholic --> Coptic Orthodox
I grew up with a lot of RC influences (my dad's side of the family is from Mexico, Ireland, etc., so they're all Catholic, though I don't think any of them are practicing anymore), so it seemed like a natural fit for a while. But I increasingly became dissatisfied with it as a mode of being Christian. It just seemed really shallow in the way that it was rooted in medieval philosophers and lots of speculation and the rambling verbiage of smart people. I wanted something simpler, more "organic", for lack of a better way to put it. I had seen glimpses of that in the RCC in Mexico and other places, but it seemed like real faith, as opposed to intellectual assent to a set of principles (often not regarding Christ, but the proper governance of the church and other such things), was increasingly hard to find. So when I eventually found some sermons by HH Pope Shenouda III that were really easy to follow, direct, and powerful, I knew I had to know more. I felt that this was the faith I wanted but didn't have. I found a copy of the Agpeya, fell in love with it, started reading the Desert Fathers, etc. It really changed my whole outlook. So now about three years after my introduction to Coptic Orthodoxy, here I am.
