My first real exposure to the Christian East was the Lamentations service 5 years ago.
My Priest knew that I was "captured" that night...but that I would need to discover that for myself.
My first Pascha was three years ago, the next year my adult son joined me, last year my wife (the slow one initially, the usual pattern) joined us.
This year we were--at last--fully joined to the Body and Blood of Christ Crucified and Risen.
Those who have followed our journey in forum and in PM will understand how awesome, how wonderful, and at moments, how autobiographical and humbling it was to be selected to start off the Paschal Orthros by reciting Psalm 50/1. A torrent of emotions!
