I just want to say that I think that crossing yourself when you pray can be a great reminder of how holy prayer is.
I also think lighting a candle in prayer can be very grounding.
Reading prayers that others have written in an expression of worship can be very liberating.
Reading those prayers knowing that others all over the world are praying the same prayer is empowering.
I am really enjoying hanging out with the Orthodox. I am not planning to convert, but I am going to incorporate as much tradition as I reasonably can.
