Inquiring into Orthodoxy
« on: March 15, 2014, 01:31:47 PM »
Hi! I'm a young Christian who was born and raised in the Anabaptist tradition, but over the last year or so has begun exploring my faith more deeply and sought to learn about traditions other than my own. I've felt drawn to Orthodoxy for some time now, but am still inquiring between it and Catholicism. I've been lurking here for a while now, and made this profile several months ago but just never posted anything. I am excited to learn about the Orthodox faith!

Welcome dear brother BrethrenBoy, I hope you will feel as home here on the forum. Enjoy all the discussions and threads to explore a bit more about orthodoxy and its tradition :)

Pray for me and forgive me, the sinner

welcome, brother.

may God have mercy on us all and lead us into all truth no matter what, keeping us firmly in His hand.

Welcome to the forum.
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.
