Some of you already know it, others don't, but yes, I left. Some people are asking me about my reasons, so I think I owe you an explanation. To put it simply, the liturgy was over, the deacon was already closing the doors and if I didn't leave I'd get locked inside. At least next Sunday I'll be back.

I was so scared...a wave of depression swept over me. Even now that I know you were kidding, I feel nauseated imagining a world in which you were not Orthodox anymore.

I figure you're joking but I was certainly bothered for much too long after reading Rapha's post.

Sorry, bro! It could only be a joke. There were dark times I felt my faith was disturbing my enjoying life and I yearned for the bliss of ignorance, but despite my shortcomings and absolute lazyness in everything faith-related, at least God blesses me with endurance of belief.

At least now I seem to have figured out how to quote posts.

You are loved by Mor Ephrem.

If you are going to liturgy to escape from your problems in your life, you are damning your soul.
