Hi. This is my first posting on the British Orthodox Fellowship Forum since becoming a member in March this year.
I have just completed "The Mountain of Silence" by Kyriacos Markides and have been blessed as I read it. I attend a Baptist Church and am a Deacon at present but I was raised in the Anglican tradition and felt a calling to the priesthood from my lat teens.
Despite being a Deacon and having a minister in our church I feel unable to discuss matters relating to my own spiritual search and would like to have a spiritual elder that I could discuss Orthodox spiritual practices with and share my doubts & experience with.
I live in South Wales and I believe there is an Orthodox Church in Risca (near Newport) and wonder if anyone can point me in the direction of someone who could help me explore Orthodox Christianity and my relationship with God.
