My Conversion to Eastern Orthodox Christianity


  1. David E. Rockett says:

    thank you brother…good balance and good job in less than 20 mins! Lord have mercy

  2. Michel Zeidan says:

    God bless you dear Jason….Being born Orthodox, some of us take for granted what we have and do not apprecite it, as we should, till we discover a journey like yours seeking the Truth. Lord have mercy on us all….

  3. Thank you Jason. This is beautiful.

  4. Jason Terpack says:

    Thank you all for your comments (just now saw them) and to Fr. John for posting.

    Asking your prayers, for me a sinner?


  5. Richard Mohr says:

    Thank you, Jason! How was your wife’s response to this process you’ve described?

    Some might ask, “What if Church History were taught in churches, without denominational biases?” Well, I had Church History when I was at Fuller Theological Seminary. Fuller is an Evangelical seminary, not a denominational one. As did many other students, I accepted the divisions as reality that wasn’t going to go away anytime soon. I didn’t know of anyone that seriously thought that the divisions required some deep thinking about the Protestant world, except for a fellow that identified himself to me one day more than thirty years ago as a “closet Catholic.” That made no sense to me, given our Reformation origins. I don’t remember if he told me his reasons.

    Each of us converts has our own story. I hope more of them get put here.
