The Who's Who
== The Who's Who ==
Just a layman, My name is Paul Barrera. I am a young man interested in Orthodoxy insofar as it encounters a culture as a whole. To that end, my main points of interest are the variety of cultural manifestations Church Reader and one of Eastern & Oriental Orthodoxy, as well as some very mild interest in how American converts have adjusted their lives to fall in line with the culture Faithful of their parish or the Orthodox Church at large.
== The Convert Thing ==I was born in Redmond, Washington and raised in Bellevue of the same state. I converted from non-denominational evangelical protestantism last yearattended Seattle University, where I earned my BA in History. I wrote two research papers: one on the disunity of the Iberian crowns and was received into the One Spanish Church in the eleventh century, and the other on Holy Saturday, the religious factions in Mexico City during Pascha 2005the era of independence. My conversion was short I am currently back at Seattle University, attending the School of Law to obtain a JD. I am also pursuing an MBA. Since my readings were longfreshman year of college, and I emerged as a big fan have lived (mostly) in Seattle. On the Sunday of Alexander SchmemmanAll Saints 2008, I was married at St Spiridon Orthodox Cathedral, my home parish. Orthodoxy has changed my life On December 15, 2013, His Eminence, although not in that turn-the-world-upside-down sort Archbishop [[Benjamin (Peterson) of waySan Francisco|BENJAMIN]] tonsured and ordained me a Church Reader. I can just say that also sing in the choir, ring the bells, and manage the parish bookstore. I am still working through enjoy pilgrimages to monasteries. One of my childhood/teenage spirituality slowlybest friends is a monastic. If you ever encounter me elsewhere on the internet, I go by Authio.
