I attempted to have a civil discussion about theistic evolution on r/atheism. I wanted to see how atheists viewed it versus young and old earth creationism. Boy was that a mistake. I was met with hostility and insults to my intelligence. I try not to overgeneralize about atheists but they were very, shall we say, stereotypical. Very little discussion was had on Theistic evolution and instead it was a mixture of being pestered for evidence of God, or being told I know nothing about evolution.

I’ve been a catholic since the day I was born (being someone of Polish and Irish decent, it’s the law). But recently I’ve become more drawn to Orthodoxy.

The fact that Orthodoxy is closer to the ancient church, mainly in the nature of the Divine Liturgy, is one of the things that makes me more and more interested in Orthodoxy.

Recently, I’ve thought more about converting.

Should I go through with it? My family is incredibly catholic and might look down on it.

While the topic of this subreddit is the Eastern Orthodox faith we all know our lives consist of much more than explicit discussions of theology or praxis. This thread is where we chat about anything you like; tell us what's going on in your life, post adorable pictures of your baby or pet if you have one, answer the questions if the mods remember to post some, or contribute your own!

So, grab a cup of coffe, joe, java, espresso, or other beverage and let's enjoy one another's digital company.

So I haven't been to confession in like 5 years and I remember the last time I confessed something my priest laughed and said "we do some stupid things don't we". I know he meant well and tried to laugh it off but I felt like I was being judged or just felt really stupid in the moment. I know that is my own anxieties getting to me.

Also we've been to dinner with our priest and his wife and have gotten close to him at some point and I always felt like that was some sort of mistake to get close like that because it makes confessing in front of him that much harder.

I'm going to go to vespers/confession this Saturday and I'm terrified as I have some heavy stuff to unload. Please pray for me!

I have a generically Protestant friend who has mentioned very low-level interest in the OC. Seems that maybe a small gift for Christmas or birthday would be appropriate.

Any experience here? A book, right? Anyone had good luck with a particular book?

And if so, what are some books I could read within this tradition?
