Category: Christian Churches
At this section you can find pictures and thoughts relative to Christian Churches I visit during my trip. My goal is to attend the Sunday mass at the nearest Orthodox Christian church available around me. Of course I am interested in visiting churches of other christian denominations, and even mosques and other spiritual places, but this would be in terms of curiosity and not some kind of multi-spiritual approach.
The very reason of this Page being here is because I personally believe that Orthodoxy is (and should be) something ecumenical (that is, for all, and by all). Not restricted to ethnic orientation of any kind. When I first attended the Divine Liturgy in English I was amased and my horizons were broadened realising that going to such a church or doing this and that in the Sunday Service is not something Greek, it’s not something Russian or Serb or I don’t know – It’s just Orthodox..
Apart from pictures of the Churches and some thoughts on the Service , at the end of every post you can find and listen to an audio file from the Service attended. This can be the whole Divine Liturgy or part of it, Matins (Orthros) (if I made it to the church from the beginning), Vespers, Compline etc. The reason why I tend to upload audio files as well is because someone may be interested in listening how the Orthodox Service sounds like in an other language.
