Catechumenate
Dear Solly,

If you look at the 'conversations' thread, you'll see a long series of posts under 'reflections of a Catechumen', which Abba Seraphim and others encouraged me to post. I make no great claims for the posts, simply to say they are a 'as I saw it at the time' record, untainted by after thoughts.

Peter and others are working on an actual course, which we hope will be ready soon, but what I liked about my catechumenate was that it was tailored for what Abba Seraphim judged I needed - tailor-made as it were. It would sound corny if I said what I thought of his judgement - but he was spot on. What I liked was that it was tailored to where I was and what he judged was needful.

Essentially it used Our daily life and other readings and prayers to inculcate me into the knowledge, teachings, and love of the Orthodox Church.

But have a look at that thread - there are my reflections and some interesting conversations with Mark Fletcher, much beloved here by some of us, who, in the end, decided it was not for him - so look at both and get some ideas.

Any help I can give is there.

In Christ,

john

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)
