When I took instruction and finished the Western Rite chrismation process it was not clear whether the Eastern Rite priest accepted the Western Rite. Does this mean you have to take instruction in the Eastern liturgical context (attending the service, talking with the priest, chatting with parishioners during coffee hour etc) Or does the Orthodox Western Rite also include the Eastern Rite? -Or- How are we supposed to develop our understanding of church terminology? ... Is Western Rite chrismation also valid in the Eastern Rite?...Wondering, thanks.

Were you chrismated in the Western Rite church?  If yes, you're Orthodox. 

If not, you would have to follow the direction of an Eastern Rite Orthodox Priest to be received in the Orthodox church.

Are you a member of a Western Rite Orthodox church in either ROCOR or  the Antiochian Patriarchate, currently those are the only western Orthodox rites recognized within canonical orthodoxy? We can not tell as you have left off your jurisdiction in your identification data on the screen..

No, I don't keep church attendance. But I still connect to people who do.

Looking at your home as being in Grandbury Texas, the following are Canonical Western Rite Churches serving North Texas Region in the Antiochian Church with the first two being closest to your listed home residence
:
St. Peter Orthodox Church
7601 Bellaire Drive S
Ft. Worth, TX 76132
(817) 263-5554
  

Our Lady of Walsingham Orthodox Church
933 Cascade Street
Mesquite, TX 75149
(972) 203-9033
  
 
St. Benedict of Nursia Orthodox Church
3808 Old Seymour Road
Wichita Falls, TX 76309
(940) 692-3392

Christ the Savior Orthodox Church
207 E Commerce Street
Jacksonville, TX 75766
(903) 586-1640

The only  ROCOR Western Rite I can find in Texas/Oklahoma area are:

St. Michael & All Angels Orthodox Church,
San Antonio, Texas

Holy Protection Church,
Austin, Texas

St. Brigit of Ireland Orthodox Church,
Claremore, Oklahoma

Hopefully you will meet regularly with a priest of one of these canonical orthodox churches to discuss issues you have raised in the Convert Issues Forum. I am sure that these holy fathers will be more than happy to help you develop as a Western Rite Orthodox Christian. The Eastern Rite Orthodox Churches and the Western Rite Orthodox Churches are one Holy Orthodox Church just different rites and are in full communion one with another.

The ST. Peter's Western Rite Orthodox Church is where I got instructed and chrismated. I can attend that WR church and take communion.

But, now call myself a Byzantine Orthodox Christian.

Then you are an Orthodox Christian and would be able to commune in an Eastern Rite church also.

You should, they are good people at St. Peter's. Sts Constantine and Helen is a good one as well, but quite the drive from Granbury.

Most of the congregants are former Episcopalians too (St. Peter's), but last time I was there they had a family or two from Iraq. So it's an interesting mixture.
