BOC Fellowship
Many congratulations to Peter Theodore for all his hard work in setting this up; I hope that we can find a virtual fellowship on line through this medium.

One of the attractive things about the idea of the Fellowship is that it gives those of us who are at various stages of our spiritual journey a forum through which to exchange views without any pressure. I have found the Monachos.net site a very good source of information, but have been a 'lurker' rather than a joiner, partly because the Oriental Orthodox seem in a small minority on it.

I suppose the obvious question for an enquiring (and increasingly disappointed) Anglican is why Oriental Orthodox rather than Eastern Orthodox? What views do those further down this path have? I am at such an early stage that I hesitate to say more, but would be delighted to be enlightened. At the moment, for me, it is the eirenic tone of the BOC and the care with which my enquiries have been treated which are most striking, although as I read more about the Coptic Orthodox Church, I am struck by the character of its long Christian witness through trials which have indeed tested the faith of Saints.

I would be very happy to hear from others who are further down the road about their journey.

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
