The Orthodox church in America is seeing a greater percentage of it's membership consisting of incoming converts, USA Today reports.
"Today, Mencotti is one of about 250 million Orthodox believers worldwide — and among a significant number of newcomers attracted to this ancient way of worship. The trend is especially notable since so few in the United States know about the Orthodox churches here."
There was one line that somewhat irked me: "Orthodoxy was born from the Great Schism of 1054, when feuds over papal authority and differences in the liturgy split Christianity into Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox halves."
Orthodoxy was "born" on the day of Pentecost.
All in all, it's an interesting article.
