New to Christianity
Hello everybody,
I have recently asked Christ to come into my life. First, I'm just going to say something about my background so please feel free to skip to the end of the next paragraph if it's not interesting. I'll just put it down in case it may prove helpful.
I am not a member of any denomination, have never been baptised and have only been to a church on a handful of occasions. My family background is non-religious. To be honest, I've actually rejected God and Christ previously. When I say I've recently 'asked' Christ into my life I mean I've done so with guilt and shame given my past record.
I find it difficult to explain but I'm finding myself getting more and more curious about Orthodoxy in particular. Is there anyone who can explain more about it to me ? I live in Portsmouth. Is there an Oriental Orthodox community nearby ? If you don't mind I would like to meet some of you to discuss the faith.
May the peace of God be with you all,
Edmund
