So I’m nervous about my post from before. I had hoped to know a little more about [and have a little more experience being] Orthodox Christian before I started writing about it, because quite frankly, I’m an idiot. I screw things up daily. I use a lot of profanity, smoke cigarettes, and am generally a prideful, obnoxious, pain in the ass. If anything, I’m a poster child of what a bad Christian looks like.
I hate to think of writing about Orthodoxy because I’m really, really not qualified. I’m going to get it wrong. A lot. And I feel like the Orthodox Faith deserves a better representation than I can give. In other words, I don’t want something I say lead anyone to believe that all Orthodox Christians are as messed up, disjointed, confused, sometimes rude, and generally incoherent as I am.
There are so many people who can give you whatever answers you need, but I’m probably not that person. Doesn’t mean I won’t try, but my inadequacies will likely become painfully apparent to anyone who cares to look. My guess is that I will write quite a bit about random stuff, including religion, and in particular, Orthodoxy, but I’m not a theologian, and I’m not very smart, so don’t expect much, okay? 😛
I’ve put off writing in here for a long time because I’ve begun a journey that I can’t even explain to the people who love me and understand me the most, what makes me think I’ll be able to write it down and do a better job? Heh. The answer is: I probably can’t, and I want to. I want it to be perfectly clear, and perfectly written, and, well, perfect!
But then I think, this blog has never really been about being perfect, so why start trying the impossible now? This thing is mostly a record of my journey through life. A way for me to get stuff out of my head so it doesn’t drive me crazy. Heh. Consider this my disclaimer. If you’re looking into the Orthodox Christian Faith, I’ll find some links to post on the side of my blog and you can go there. If you’re curious about what a crazy housewife/wannabe writer is up to and what she’s rambling aimlessly about now, then read on.
