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?

I agree and that I am willing to incorporate these practices and elements into my daily life but would like to know more about them before I do.

I also agree and have an appreciate for Eastern Churches and their emphasis on aesthetics. They have an understanding of the physical and spiritual and the fact that beauty seems to be a more obvious connection between the two… something like the veil is thinner and it is easier to enter into worship with your physical surroundings are beautiful, peaceful, and holy. Obviously not every Eastern church is like this, but many of the ones I have been too are.
