Church Etiquette

Orthodox Christianity has been around for nearly 2000 years and has developed traditions in many different cultures, so as you might expect, Orthodox church etiquette can vary from church to church.  The Antiochian Archdiocese has published a useful BOOKLET ON CHURCH ETIQUETTE that explains some of the general DOs and DON'Ts of attending an Orthodox service.  Most importantly, be considerate of others, have a respectful attitude towards the Orthodox church in which you are worshipping, and "in all things give glory to God" (1 Corinthians 10:31).
