I started this blog to 1) document our conversion experience (both mine and my husband’s) for my own personal reasons, 2) to share with the world the information that I have learned and 3) to explain our beliefs to our sometimes bewildered friends and family.
The players in this story are myself, my husband and our young son. We became catechumens in September 2009.
I won’t pretend that I have perfectly represented the beliefs of the Orthodox Church – I certainly desire to do that, but I am just a catechumen. Please accept my apologies and do not consider me the final source on any matter concerning the faith.
You might find that at this point in my journey I am still making many comparisons between Orthodoxy and Protestantism. My own background is Protestant and I am still at a point where I can’t help but to make comparisons between my old way of thinking and my new way of thinking. No disrespect to Protestants is intended; I only hope to offer food for thought. I also make some comparisons to Roman Catholicism. Many Protestants view Orthodoxy through the lens of Roman Catholicism and fail to see the major distinctions between the two. I hope that I have offered some perspective, though admittedly rather limited.
Thank you for reading.
