The Church in America is a lot more accessible today than it was a generation ago, and we can give thanks to God for that. We have tons of English language literature, and more often than not the services are served in English. The people I learned the Faith from had to be cultural ambassadors, going into ethnic Russian enclaves and assuming the role of a learner. It was not for everybody, you had to be a certain type of person. My Godfather went to a ROCOR parish for 20 years and stood through services which were being sung in Slavonic, not understanding a word of it.Roosh and other Orthodox forum members,
How do you deal with the ethnic aspect of the Orthodox church? While I do have some Ukrainian blood, I am mostly of Germanic heritage. There's no Germanic Orthodox church that I know of. Is it strange to not be of the ethnicity of the Orthodox branch you've chosen? (If, of course, this applies to you).
