I found this forum yesterday while searching a story about Coptic Christians in New Jersey. I am not Coptic, but I am very interested in Coptic history, culture, and current situation. My family is from Lebanon, I was born in Canada. My family is of Lebanese Maronite and Orthodox background, though I was raised in a western denomination. I do not speak Arabic well but I know just a little. Spent a month in Lebanon last year, never been to Egypt but would love to go one day to see some of the churches and pyramids.
Anyways, thanks for approving my membership and I hope to participate from time to time.
