I am converting to the Antiochian Jurisdiction, hopefully by Pasha in 2014.
This has been a couple years in the making and Christmas this year sealed the deal
for sure. I am a virtual shut in most of the time and the Catholics just ignored my while the Orthodox emailed and called me and offered me fellowship of all kinds. Like a fool I held out for some of my RC family members to call or show up and they never did.
Pope Francis is trying to put a warm face on a cold judgmental institution that needs to
erase 500 years of moronic doctrine and they never will. I am not Anti Catholic, I feel
deep sorrow for them and the place they have put themselves. I am happy to be joining the True Church for many positive reasons I did not mention here.

Welcome to the Forum!

:)

I'm glad to hear you'll be joining the Orthodox Church soon!

You'll find us all to be a friendly bunch...and always willing to answer questions!

Once again, welcome!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Come not between the Nazgûl and his...love of Apostolic doctrine?  ???

Welcome to the forum and the Church, and watch out for Dernhelm...it's really Éowyn.  Okay, I'm a geek.  Sorry.  :-\
Worship is theology, so a church which brings Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" into its corporate life is no longer Orthodox.  It is, by definition, heterodox.  Those "Orthodox" leaders who make theological arguments for the incorporation of heteropraxis into the life of the Church are heretics.

Welcome.

But can Éowyn be a threat on her own or does she require the aid of Master Meriadoc to attack from behind first?  ;D
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Glad to see you have communication and can feel connected to your local parish even if you can't always be there in attendance. I have just this past week visited my local parish and am glad to see the warm welcome and openness there. The easy access to communication with my priest will be very helpful as I sort out everything on this journey into Orthodoxy. Good luck on your upcoming baptism!

Hmmm...the Witch King of Angmar converting to Orthodoxy...this could spark an interesting debate about the efficacy of prayers for the undead.  ;)
