i might check out an eastern orthodox church on sunday, if anyone else is interested, i will post my experience here. :)
there was less bowing down than we do and they kiss the icons 'properly' rather than kiss their hand after touching them.
we did move on to discuss chalcedon, and no-one got beaten up or excommunicated ;)
so in summary, we worshipped God together and agreed on many things. obviously i couldn't take communion with them coz the patriarchs haven't yet come to agreement on all the saints they mutually excommunicated after chalcedon, but i, personally believe that God was present in their celebration ofthe sacred mysteries and am eagerly looking forward to the time when we can join more fully with our other orthodox brothers.i would recommend to anyone (especially people who have been Christians for a long time, so won't be too confused by going to different churches) to visit the eastern orthodox churches and report back to us here your experiences. i think this will help us to grow together in our Lord and Saviour, while avoiding error. also those from other churches are very welcome to share their experiences with us here.may the Holy Spirit of God guide us into all truth
