I was an Episcopalian, I converted to orthodoxy before I was married in the the G.O. Church, I struggled for many years with the Greek language being used exclusively in the litergy , but I did learn some Greek and I love to sing so I joined the choir and sang by reading "greeklish" I did do pretty well I guesse because many Greek people thought I spoke it well. But when I had my children there was no churc near by so their youth was not spent at any church and when we finally did build a church the other G.O. children harrased them because they were after all ,"half breeds" . I am upset because I feel I let my children down because I was unable to give them the same type of unpredjudiced upbringing that I recieved as a child. It was very hard for them, now it is very difficult to get them to attend church at all ,they are so turned off by their experience.Even at that, my son Married a wonderful girl,they married in the oca church , they have a beautiful daughter, and they have baptized her orthodox!! But my son still has a hard time going to church.My daughter is in love with aman who has no religion because his mother didn't want to impose one on him, so I guesse you can see my dilema with this??!! I hope you can help me with my daughter"s problem she won't push him at all , not even to become an Ep. as his dad is, anyway it is a sad tail of conversion for me, but maybe it will turn out O.K. if you can help write to me thanx DeeGee
