It's one of the most beautiful things I've ever experienced. I live near a Ukrainian Catholic Church and every once in a while I go by myself early on a Sunday morning to meditate on the divine - it's like a spiritual house cleaning for me.
I also love the Coptic rite and have attended a few times but the Egyptian church is much further from where I live. I think I would consider joining an African Orthodox congregation in the future.
Get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. -Muhammad Ali
