"Brothers and sisters, I would just like to thank you all for the website. I'm living in Sweden and have for quite some time now been on my way home to Orthodoxy. Fortunately, there are Orthodox churches in the area where I live, so I do get to participate in the liturgy (except communion) on a rather regular basis. Having a background in fundamentalist evangelicalism, your podcasts have been most helpful in my efforts to change patterns of thinking."
