Normally Orthodoxy is not mentioned in the public media in
this country, but some years ago, I was listening
to NPR and heard a commentator talk about Eastern Orthodox Lenten traditions.
She contrasted them to western traditions and was quite illuminating. She also mentioned
that she wrote on beliefnet.com. I
checked it out, and found many interesting conversations on Orthodoxy and how
it is viewed by others.
This was once a very good place for conversations with other
Christians and folks that had an interest in the Orthodox faith. It was
once a site to learn about the ways of others, and their traditions. But all things change I guess, and whatever
it was that made this site a nice place for discussions has passed, its uniqueness
is gone and has just become another “me” orientated site.
