    I am traditionally Eastern Orthodox and married to a traditionally non-Orthodox (Uniting). Recently we attended a Lutheran church, and without thinking, I partook their communion service. I've since realised my mistake. What are my options, what should I do?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Talk with your priest. Don't assume you will not take Orthodox Communion ever again.

    Which was why I had said "talk WITH your priest" not "talk to your priest"

    There is a HUGE difference between 'with' and 'to'

    I concur with the others. First step would be to talk to your priest, along with confession. Our communion with the Church can be restored through confession.

    Welcome to CF and to TAW. :)

    I don't need to add to what the others said because I'd only say the same. But I wanted to welcome you.

    Don't despair until you speak with the priest. Your heart is already engaged in repentance.

    Do you have a priest close by?

    What happened to OP? I hope he was able to find good advice here and avoiding the Orthodox bashing on his other thread.

    Why is it a big deal that he took communion?
