Um so this is my first post so I am a bit nervous.
So I am ethnically Korean mostly and I discovered the Coptic Church through a friend and loved many the beliefs that come with the Coptic Church.
Just last week, I heard a sermon from the Abouna about the responsibilities of being a member of the Church and finally had the courage to want to ask the Abouna about how I can become a member.
However, I am still nervous because the only other non Egyptians in the church are married to Egyptians while I would have come to the faith on my own.
Also, my parents do not approve of me going to church and well... it has been very difficult for me to go to church with them forbidding me, but I have tried as much as I can to learn on my own. I even decided to learn some Arabic to understand the sermons better.
Even if I have come a long way, I also know that I have so much to learn about liturgies and holidays. So hopefully people would be understanding if I ask too many questions. I am also wondering if there are other non Egyptians in the forums as well who can give me some guidance.
Thanks for your help, and God bless you.
