Start so early. all the Orthodox Church's in my area start at like 8 or 9 am I think they would push it back to 7 am if they could but why is it so early. most other church's are not till 10 or 11. Is their a reason for Liturgy to be this early or is it to just get it done and out of the way so you can get on with your day.

I guess you're not in Jacksonville (as suggested by your avatar) because St. Justin Martyr Church there has Divine Liturgy at 10 AM on Sunday.   The Greek Church is the same, although it's true that Matins starts at 8:30.  You don't have to attend Matins (Orthros) though, especially if you are just visiting.

Religion is a disease, and Orthodoxy is its cure.
