Since I cannot find an introduction forum, I thought I would post here to introduce myself.

My name is Robert Lyons, and I am a presbyter (priest) in the Christian Church - Synod of Saint Timothy.  We are a small ecclesial body that is not currently united to either Rome or any of the Orthodox patriarchates.  In the past few years myself and my bishop have been studying the Oriential and Eastern Orthodox traditions and theological bases and have really come to a point where we have both given up on western theology.

As a result, at the beginning of this liturgical year, we began using an Oriental Rite liturgy in the Antiochean/Syrian stream, derived from the Maronite (Catholic) and Syrian (Orthodox) traditions.  We are not sure where the Lord is leading us, but I felt the need to find a place to associate with people more deeply connected to eastern Theology and practice, and after doing a Google search, I found these fourms.

While I am sure I'll share my practices and beliefs, I am mainly hear to learn, and look forward to participating here.

While the internet can be useful for getting some basic information on Orthodoxy, the only way to really tap into Tradition is to be part of a living Orthodox community.  Here is a fairly comprehensive (Eastern) Orthodox directory of the United States and Canada: http://www.orthodoxyinamerica.org/
