    My guesses are Uniate, Oriental (Coptic), or reunification schismatic.

Hey guys. I'm just going to jump in here and mention that while discussing people's religious affiliations in an intentional community setting is probably kosher here (sorry, couldn't resist), getting into the minutiae of belief is relegated to the religion and spirituality forum in the Cider Press. Let's not cause the moderators any headaches, shall we?

I am most definitely unorthodox, but my cousin married a woman whose family follows the Greek Orthodox tradition. It was wild seeing a naked vertical full-immersion baptism.

How many distinct Orthodox sects are there, and to what extent are they similar, or how do they differ beyond the language used? I have known some Greek and Ukrainian Orthodox believers. They are all Byzantine Right, right? Or am I getting it confused?

-CK

Apologies. I didnt even notice the context was intentional community. I tend to hit recent and just focus on post title. Will be more attentive to forum / subforum. Thanks

    I think that Chris was primarily talking to me, and it was in fact my post that got pulled. Sorry about this. I didn’t see it as a potentially controversial topic.

To keep trolls and flamewars from taking over our forum, we keep discussion of religion to a special forum called Religion and Spirituality. It's a forum that's only open to people with enough apples--this keeps people from joining our forum just to cause division. You're post, Myron, was worded really well and would have been fine in the Cider Press. It sadly was an opening for someone to come along and tell you how wrong they thought they were and make a big debate. We wouldn't want that to happen to your thread!

I think as long as we just keep this thread to making connections, rather than discussing religious doctrines, we should be able to keep it here in Intentional Community. And, once you have enough apples, you can start a thread in Religion and Spirituality if you'd like!

I hope this helps explain things a bit.

hello,
I follow Russian Orthodox tradition but I am British and live in the UK. I love the service and find it much more meaningful than the anglican church. I would love to find an Orthodox Intentional community to be part of that isn't Monastic.

Wishing you well,

Jo

As an Orthodox catechumen, I am grateful to see some others here on permies.

I look forward to connecting more with others within the Church here.

Hi! That is a long-term goal I have. On some forest-field edge. Maybe in an old abandoned village. But I'm unlikely to leave Russia to do it. One site I am helping the land owner to develop may become that community. We have a bit of an Otis-Gert  relationship. We have agreed to build an Oehler-style house on the property for me to live in, and there is an abandoned church next door that we want  to restore. It is a quite large stone church for a village, because an ancient, wealthy aristocratic family used to live on the land pre-revolution, and they built it.
