Facing East recounts a year in the life of a small Orthodox mission one created by six families that include a newly minted priest Mathews Green s husband The M Gs as the author refers to her family later on are both converts to the faith and throughout this piece she reflects on the way her experience has changed in the last three years as she and her husband begin to soak in the liturgy and live the Orthodox life deeply While this is not a formal introduction to Orthodoxy or even a conversion testimonial Mrs M G often provides exposition about the what and why of service Like the faith itself however this tale is experiential than epistemological We encounter the sacraments Baptism for instance not through lectures but through the lives of the congregants communicated in the intimate and awe filled style of the author Short though it may be Facing East provides a hint of how deep a well the Orthodox tradition is The mission of Holy Cross may be small and relegated to renting a space that has to be evacuated every Sunday afternoon to make room for the weekday tenants but in their religious life they are as firmly established as any of the grandest metropolitan seats or parishes across the world

CHARACTERS ´ Facing East A Pilgrim's Journey into the Mysteries of Orthodoxy The Classic Story of a Family's Pilgrimage into the Orthodox Church Veiled in the smoke of incense the Eastern Orthodox Church has long been an enigma to the Western world Y. Read this about a year before I converted to Orthodox Christianity Frederica is basically a former hippie who with her husband converted to Episcopalianism her husband became an Episcopal priest and they eventually converted to Orthodoxy after they became disenchanted with the direction of the Episcopal Church The Mathewes Greens were part of an interesting phenomenon which began in the mid to late 1980s where Protestant ministers their families and sometimes their entire congregations converted to Orthodoxy usually going to the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese until then a relatively small jurisdiction consisting mainly of Syrian Orthodox Christians and converts The presence of so many former Protestant evangelicals has injected interesting new life into American Orthodoxy which has traditionally been characterized by ethnic jurisdictions in an uneasy peace with one another but which is now blossoming into a truly pan Orthodox movement with new arrivals from Orthodox countries converts and cradle Orthodox all co existing in parishes across the countryThis book is basically the story of a small Antiochian Orthodox mission parish of converts finding its way but it s also the story of Frederica a Protestant convert finding her way to and through Orthodoxy I found the book uite useful in figuring out what to expect as I journeyed from being a very lapsed Roman Catholic to a newly chrismated Orthodox Christian and indeed we experienced many of the same things like figuring out fasting rules the true joy of Pascha and becoming part of a parish communitySome find Frederica s writing style to be overly folksy or chummy others find it girl talky I didn t think it was that bad if anything it showed me that Orthodox Christians aren t mysterious folks who stand for 2 hour church services swathed in incense they re just people like me
