Well went to Vespers tonight at the Greek Orthodox Church, it was pretty good and making more contacts feeling less of a loner. The Father is a very humble man with a sense of a humor. Still however between the Greek Church, the Coptic Orthodox Church or The Russian Church I feel like I still looking for a home, It like no matter where I leave I met wonderful people. Idealistically  I would love to go to the Orthodox Church a hour and half away it traditional but friendly to newcomers , has a family atmosphere and while traditional it under the Jerusalem Patriarchate, Orthodox Middle Easterners are awesome in there hospitality. However the travel situation since I take the bus is impossible especially with my work schedule to go the J.P. Church  :( . Realistically it either going to be the Greek Orthodox Church or the Coptic Orthodox Church. The Russian Church while I love the Church Slavonic and the Father is more traditional then the Greek  Orthodox Church which goes above and beyond in some Modern things I don't like but there minor so I can live with it. I don't know it just I don't know any Slavonic at all and it makes it feel wired trying to go along bowing and doing prostrations at the wrong time looking like a fool at the Russian Church. It like the Holy Spirit is helping with this process of elimination down to the Greek and Coptic Churches. I want to also have a visit to the Syriac Orthodox Church a hour or so away when I have a working vehicle unless I converted by then.

I need your Prayers to find the right place of worship where I feel yup this is it a done deal. It hard since you get to know people and will miss them. Also please pray for me to come to a conclusion between Eastern Orthodoxy and Coptic Orthodoxy both make strong cases for their faiths actually the Copts have been super nice I expected to get chased out the first time but I was proven wrong :laugh:
Just Pray for me folks I am torn I'm going to Continue to limit my posts per day & stick to Studying the Church Fathers, Scripture the Desert Fathers and the Early Church. Thanks OC.Net you all been a help on my journey got to go to bed there liturgy early in the morning. I can't afford to sleep in and miss it because I'm trying to make to as many liturgies and events as possible. Pray for me folks

thanks everyone I can't sleep just in a wired way excited I'm taking the steps needed and I confess with my protestant & catholic years I might have had a hard time accepting the claims in secret due to history but Orthodoxy is solid no matter where Iand
