y Dear Merlina,

I much regret the sorrow and sadness which many Anglicans, including yourself, are currently suffering.

The teaching package on which I have recently commenced work is still some way off yet but I do have a series of lectures (12 in all) on 6 DVDs (2 lectures per DVD) which cover the basics of Orthodox theology, doctrine or belief. While my own efforts are still in preparation and also given the positive feedback I am still receiving from people studying these lectures I would recommend them as a profitable exploration of Orthodox Christian belief. They can be supplemented by additional reading at certain points of extra significance.

I have no idea whereabouts in the county you are nor how close to one of our Churches or missions you may be - but in terms of sending you material such as these DVDs I am more than happy to be of whatever help I can.

My email is: <!-- e --><a href="mailto:fr.simon.smyth@copticmail.com">fr.simon.smyth@copticmail.com</a><!-- e --> - or I believe you can message me direct through this Forum though I am not terribly technological so can't recall exactly how you do this! Either way if you want to give me a name and address where I can send you the study material I will gladly do so.

I am sorry for your pain at this time. I was once an Anglican and didn't enjoy my leaving the Church of England... though back then I had simply no idea of the joys and blessings and riches God was going to shower upon me throughout nearly two decades now in Orthodoxy.

with my prayers,

Simon
