    Jordanville Erratum

    So I've had the HTM for years and recently picked up the much mentioned Jordanville Prayer book. I'm a bit disappointed in having come across typos and also in general I'm not impressed with the layout. Has anyone else noticed this?  I've come across at least several typos and haven't even...

    How do you arrange/shelve your Orthodox books?

    Over the year's I've amassed about a bookcase worth of books related directly to Orthodoxy.  I've experimented with a couple different ways of arranging, how do you?

    WR vs. English Language Eastern Rite

    Has the effort to translate Eastern liturgy/hymnody into English challenged at all the rationale for developing a Western Rite? I imagine that the development of the Western Rite preceded efforts like arranging/translating Russian Znamenny chants into English?

    What's the attraction to WR?

    Are some converts drawn to WR Orthodoxy because it may somehow validate, perhaps unconsciously, some aspect of the worship they had experienced in the RCC/Anglican/High Church heretical/heterodox tradition?

    Colby Rasmus Convert?

    The only reason why this guy would grow a beard this awful is if he's a convert to Orthodoxy of the Russian lineage.

    What is the part of the liturgy when . . .?

    As an inquirer I get out to many Vespers/Vigils services throughout the year - one of the parts of vigils services that always floors me is when a long catalog of saints are mentioned . . is the term commemorated? . . . usually chronologically. . . I'd say close to 50 names are included. What...

    Question about an increasingly common Prot. stance/gesture

    I've noticed in the Prot. churches I've attended the increasingly common gesture of holding the hands out at about the waist with the palms facing upward during the welcoming prayer and the benediction at the end of the service. The hands are not overlapping but both perpendicular to the body. I...

    Poll for Converts & Inquirers: The Transition from Inquiry to the Catechumate

    I am now in the fourth year of my inquiry.  I chalk this to my indecisiveness and unwillingness to take action that might alienate me from my family/spouse. I think all doctrinal issues were resolved within a year or two.  My sense of commitment to a Protestant congregation is no longer an issue...

    The Historical Road of Eastern Orthodoxy by Fr. Alexander Schmemann

    I'm reading this book over the holidays as I found an original edition in the local library system. I know he is primarily known as a liturgist.  How does this work of history stand up in your mind minds? I am at the section on Justinian who he seems to mount significant blame for the...
