Got invited to an egyptian christmas service

Recommended Posts

A friend of my father is an immigrant from egypt and has invited me to a coptic orthodox christmas service. (They celebrate christmas on January 6th) I am very fascinated an interested and will be going tomorrow. They have strict rules like women must wear a veil, everyone must not wear their shoes in the church, and the men must stand on the right while the women stand on the left. I just want to go to experience a different culture of things and to experience this. Lots of incense will be used and I think a lot of Arabic will be spoken.

The service will be 3-4 hours! I have no interest in joining this church, but thought it was kind my fathers friend invited me. This should be an interesting experience!

This part fascinates me! In any case, hope it's a good experience. Best wishes. :)

I think there will be a chance to learn about their culture and find slivers of the true gospel in their rituals. Sounds fascinating!

Just as I would be curious about the Masonic and Jewish traditions, this sound like a great opportunity to see how various aspects of the gospel have been carried on and taught for generations.
