Thank you so much for telling us something about your background. My eldest son is a Baptist pastor, and his twin brother also veers towards that end of the ecclesiastical spectrum, although they were both brought up as Anglicans; do I mean 'although' or 'because' I wonder?
I know what you mean about the Catholic Church; it is hard to put into words, and so I tend to talk about the parts of its doctrine that are novel, but there is something else there too; but I admire its witness to the world greatly, even though I could not follow two of my friends into it.
You have clearly already done the first thing that one gets told by the Orthodox- that is to experience the worship. The BOC offers Orthodoxy with an ethos that is British, and a Liturgy in English. I have enjoyed it when I have been to Coptic services, but it is good to be able to follow things properly, and the Liturgy of St. James is wonderful; I find it hard to see how I got on without it all those years!
You have clearly been guided towards the Orthodox path. We, as you have already discovered, are a small and somewhat scattered community, but the Lord works His will, and we follow. Some Eastern Orthodox are welcoming, others not, so if it transpires that your nearest Orthodox Church is EO, I hope it will be an eirenic one.
One of the great things about this site is that it is for the fellowship, many of whom are as you are, and I was, searching for information and dialogue; I hope that we can be of use to you in any way you need; my prayers, and I am sure those of others, are with you.
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)
