Hi Isaac,

Thanks for your honest post. I don’t think your feelings are unique; I’d wager everyone who begins turning their gaze on themselves as they set out on the spiritual journey feels more or less as you do. We stumble — but we get back up again and move forward. And if we’re in the right company, there will be others to accept us where we are on our journey, help us back on our feet and point us in the right direction so we can move forward.

One aspect of the Orthodox Church, or at least the one I’ve been attending, that I really like is that it’s not a group of faultless saints but a community of fallible people, all striving to polish their rough edges as best they can. This is as true of the priests as it is of the rest of us. That’s why we offer each other our prayers and our support.
