Years ago I was reading a blog about a family who were lighthouse keepers on an isolated island. The mother wrote the blog, and I enjoyed the posts. It listed one of her interests as "ancient Christianity." That struck me. I liked the term. There was something there that seemed to strike a nerve, seemed to satisfy some unknown hunger. But what did it mean?
I did a google search on "ancient Christianity" and found only information about Orthodox Christianity. "That's lame," I thought. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't that. I had no desire to learn about Orthodox Christianity, so I dropped it.
If I'd read some of the websites, I might have found that Orthodox Christianity is indeed ancient Christianity. It is the faith of the Apostles, preserved for 2,000 years. It really was what I was looking for, but I had no idea at the time.
