    Hello dear people,

    Been a long time since I posted! Life has been complicated and now it isn't so much so. I'm living in the greater Seattle area and for the first time ever I get to visit a OCA church!

    Several years ago I seriously considered "becoming Orthodox" but found too many compelling reasons in the continuing Anglican communion .....that and there simply wasn't an OCA option near me at the time. I am so excited. I'll do everything wrong but get to meet some wonderful people!

    I'm hoping to make St. Bartholomew's my new home:

    It's been terribly hard moving half way across the country (I've done it four times now....please never again), and even harder leaving church families behind. If anyone's here in Seattle I would love to meet up!

    I have missed being here! I have so many questions and things to talk about, hopefully have some time soon to contribute more often!

    I pray Anne that this is your last move. Unless of course God wills otherwise

    Anne,

    Glad to hear you a doing well. I've not been on here much either, but it's still nice to come back and see it's still here :)

    I've also struggled between following the Anglican and Orthodox churches. I see beauty and value in both of them. I attend evening Vespers at a local Orthodox church some Saturdays which is a great way to connect with the community there. But, feel much more at home with the Anglican tradition.

    Hope everything goes well at your new church home!
