I am an Orthodox Christian priest. I have been Orthodox my entire life and a priest since July 2007. From my perspective, in America at least, we have lost the functional understanding of our Orthodox Christian Faith. We must take seriously that our Traditions have purpose and are not a just a litany of tasks and obligations we must perform. To "boil down" the Faith to that creates an environment I believe is what the Apostle Paul taught against. Glory to God.
Be Transfigured – Humility Prepares the Way of Christ
When the Holy Trinity was about to be revealed to the world, God did not send a king, a governor, or an emperor. He sent a man of incredible humility. John the Baptist expressed his humility by declaring, “There comes One after me who is mightier than I, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to stoop down and loose.” (Mark 1.7) He knew he was not worthy of God, but still God referred to him as the greatest woman ever to be born of a woman. (Matthew 11.11) If you want to prepare your heart and soul for Christ, consider the humility of John the Baptist.
