LOOKING FOR A CHRIST-CENTERED CHURCH?

We are not Jewish, but we are Orthodox
We are not Roman, but we are Catholic
We are not Protestant, but the Bible came from us
We are not Denominational, we are Pre-Denominational

"We did not set out to discover Orthodoxy. We set out to find out what the Ancient Church was really like and in doing so we discovered Orthodoxy." – Very Reverend Father Gordon Walker, Protestant Pastor who converted to Orthodoxy

“As we read, a whole new world came into existence. A world where without any question there was, number one, vitality, but where there was also, secondly, there was Liturgy. To discover that there was Liturgy in the Ancient Church came as a horrendous shock. To find out that there was Liturgy in that Bible that I thought I knew so well was frightening. And I began to ask, ‘What else is there in there that I don’t understand?’ I began to run into the word in the Bible, the word ‘Eucharist.’ Oh, we don’t usually translated it that way in the English Bible, we just translate it ‘the giving of thanks’ or ‘giving thanks’ but the word was there. The very word that we took into the English language as ‘Eucharist’ was right there in the Bible.” – Very Reverend Father Jon Braun, Protestant Pastor who converted to Orthodoxy

His Eminence, Metropolitan JOSEPH's Thought for the Day
It is said of St. Peter of Alexandria that he never climbed the steps and sat on the patriarchal throne in church, but rather stood or sat before the steps of the throne. When the faithful complained that their hierarch did not sit in his place, he replied: "Whenever I approach the throne, I see a heavenly light and power upon it, and that is why I do not dare climb and sit on it."
