The First Two American Orthodox Convert Priests

This is from the podcast American Orthodox History
by Matthew Namee.

As seen from the website:
"Matthew discusses the careers of Nicholas Bjerring (1870) and James Chrystal (1868), the first two convert priests in American Orthodox history. Learn more HERE."

I personally like this one for he shows both the good, the bad, and the ugly. For everything isn't always all good, and perseverence in suffering both externally and internally is something that must be done if one wants to stay Orthodox. He showed two examples where converts were rushed to the clerical priesthood, and how they eventually fell away. I take this to heart for I am also a convert, and this is something I need to be aware of.........for some of the things I saw in them, I see in myself.
