    What do you think the trajectory of belief in orthodox faith is?

    I know this has probably been discussed many times. I am talking about NUMBER OF BELIEVERS. Do you believe that over time Orthodox Church will increase or decrease, where does these trends lead to?

    Something about myself I feel like sharing for some reason

    When I was younger, I was questioning Protestantism and I thought, why not read my family's copy of Saint Augustine's confessions (and also Imitation of Christ, which was also in the binding)?  No one in the family had read it. Maybe it will give me clarity in life while I am doing this, as I...
