Today I discovered (and I should not be surprised, I guess) that there are people who probably don't understand how I can be so certain about the Orthodox Church. Who knows why? Maybe they, like myself before, have never felt the kind of certainty I feel now. Maybe they have experience with people who thought they were solid but then were not later. Today is really the first day I realized this, and maybe now I can understand reactions from friends better than I did.

  2. I have a friend who consistently asks me if we still attend the Orthodox Church. She doesn't seem to understand that this is a lifelong commitment. I know that coming from an Evangelical/Protestant background, staying at one church for extended time is not the norm. It is hard for some people to believe that one can be so committed to something after such a short period of time. But, when you know, you know :) Right?
