My sister approached me with a question yesterday and I had no idea, how to answer it, so I figured I'd pose it here for some help.
My sister and her husband are both Serbian Orthodox and were asked to be God Parents (Kum and Kuma in Serbian), to friends of the family (quite some time ago) and now the couple is having a baby.
They informed my sister that they intend on Christening the baby in the Macedonian Orthodox Church.
My sister is concerned and frankly, so was I (maybe without need) but that is why I'm asking for some advice here.
As some of you may know the MOC is kind of in a state of limbo, seeking autocephaly, but not being recognized as such by any other Orthodox Church. Officialy, I think they are an autonomous Church, but from what I've read, they are on the verge of being declared schismatic for trying to unilaterally declare their autocephally.
Should my sister (actually her husband), Christen in the MOC? Does doing so, undermine our faith? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
