I am a reader, contributor, editor, and [http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/Special:Listadmins sysop] here at the OW. In case you are wondering, I would refer to myself as a non-Orthodox / Heterodox Christian. I have a very strong interest in Eastern Orthodoxy and its relationship to the historic Christian faith. I also edit pages at [[Wikipedia:User:Joe Rodgers|Wikipedia]], but I prefer to work here.

About Me

I am a reader, contributor, editor, and sysop here at the OW. If you would like to learn more about me you can visit my home page, joeandjessie.net. However, I can't promise you will find lots of engaging information there. If you are more interested in my spiritual life you can read the About Joe page on my site.

My Work Here

For now, I am taking somewhat of a back-burner role here. I will most likely be monitoring Recent changes to the Wiki and editing pages that directly apply to topics I am researching. I still have an interest in working with the Help wanted and Special pages and also developing the template that introduces new readers to a broad overview of the Orthodox church.

I also am curious about making clarifications and suggestions for the Style Manual. For instance, I would like to help keep pages clear and concise. Having really long pages runs the risk of a lot of page scrolling. On the other hand, I am learning that short pages have their own problems. Other than that, I have been organizing conversion stories. In addition to this, I hope to get some maps created.
