Reply To: Are there elements of ancient and/or modern Near Eastern Christianity that are present in your own church/faith life? If so, what are they? If not, would you be open to implementing any?

Hi Grace,
I found your thoughts about how we engage with art or a church service and how that shapes our experience of what we are observing compelling – It makes me wonder, what aspects of our faith and who God is are we missing by limiting our church experience? The only experience I can relate it to would be when I visited an Orthodox church in Crete. I was a bit overwhelmed at the incense and ornate-ness everywhere, but I also was keenly attuned to God’s holiness and divinity in a way I had not experienced in the Western church.
