This might be a silly question, but here it goes...
I am considering attending a Coptic Orthodox Church near my home (in the US). This would be the first time I ever attended any Orthodox Church. I am American born and not Egyptian. Do you think this will be accepted? I don't know if the congregation is mostly Egyptian and if so, will they perhaps view me as an oddity. :)
Or is it more common then I think to have a non-Egyptian attending a Coptic Church?
I would be interested in hearing from anyone else who may have gone through a similar process (i.e. you are American or European, non-Egyptian, but felt led to the Coptic Church).
I would also be interested in hearing from Copts themselves. Do you welcome all to your Church?
