I haven't been here in a while and I see our little team has grown! Welcome to all!
I am with a Greek Orthodox Church. I think that our traditions are basically the same as any other Orthodox church: abstain from all animal products (meat, chicken, fish, eggs, butter, milk, cheese, etc) and wine/alcohol. Attend church as often as possible, especially the Pre-sanctified Liturgies and the Salutations to the Theotokos, give alms to the poor, and increase prayer.
I am the chanter and choir director at my church, so it's a given that I get to all the services! I abstain from animal products most all of the time anyway because I have high cholesterol and manage to keep it controlled through watching my diet and increasing my exercise.
The thing I find difficult is increasing my prayer time and I'd really like to cut down on my time with electronic devices (i,e, computer, Netflix, etc).
Thanks for the topic!
