I am so glad for you. When people say you have to experience Orthodoxy, those coming to it can get a little irritated - 'what does that mean?' - until you experience it - then, as you found out, you know why it is so important.
There is a kindness and a peacefulness about the BOC, which I am not altogether sure its members always see, but which is so clear to those of us coming from elsewhere. Yes, it is the clarity of God's light; there is no substitute for it - it is 'The Real Thing'.
Today I was received into the Church, and like you, found a fellowship and a spiritual comfort I have never known. The baptism touched me beyond words; and my first communion was even more indescribable. It was coming home - and I thank the BOC for its welcome, and the community at St. Felix, who could not have been kinder.
That Peter Farrington and his lovely son, Callum, should have made the long journey touched me so much; it is so characteristic of the BOC. As you would expect, with Abba Seraphim present and preaching, and with Fr. Tony's presence, it was a unique occasion; I feel blessed.
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)
