Welcome to Overtly Orthodox. Today we hear from a gentleman named Gary Greenfield. Gary "transitioned" from a Protestant sect of Christianity to the Orthodox Church rather late in life. (I think transition is a better use of words than conversion, but I digress.)

So you understand the context of what you'll hear, when I recorded this, I was brand new to the Orthodox Church. In fact, I had never even set foot in an Orthodox Church. Gary's contribution to an audiobook I was producing actually made me aware of, and set in motion my own inquiry and eventual transition to the Orthodox Church.

I was so moved by Gary's words that I wanted to interview him and hear his story. My intent was to publish the interview on a different podcast that never really got off the ground. But it's perfect for this one!

I hope you listen and are blessed by Gary's story.

In this discussion with Gary, you'll discover:

-Gary's discovery of the Orthodox Church after much spiritual seeking throughout adult life...09:08

-A very deliberate way of thinking, in spite of youth and error-filled stops on the journey...18:32

-"I could never be fully committed to the Protestant congregation I was involved with"...22:26

-The militant Protestant church shows its true colors...29:30

-Gary discovers "ancient Christianity" over beer and cheesecake...34:27

-This stood out about the Orthodox Church from all the other sects within Christendom...41:33

-Gary describes a visit to an Orthodox Church to someone who has never attended a Orthodox Church service...49:17

-How the transition to Orthodoxy impacted Gary's life, spiritually and otherwise...59:25

-And Much More!

P.S. I recently learned that Gary succumbed to a battle with cancer, so RIP Gary Greenfield.
