Deesis, an important icon of Jesus in the centre, flanked by Mary on His right and John the Baptist on His left. This is a continuing theme in Orthodox church iconography. Suddenly I became interested in the Orthodox icons and liturgy. It reminded me of my childhood, going to an Anglican church that had very similar liturgy. It reminded me of the church service I heard in a Coptic church in Cairo. Since coming back from Turkey I have been researching on the Orthodox church and found a lot of very impressive things. Today it is not surprising that people have converted to the Orthodox faith.
