Rev. Fr. Frank Marangos, D.Min. We are one big family of people, trying to make our way through the unfolding puzzle of life. Sara Paddison (Author) Evil is no joke!

In the early morning of July 20, the suburban town of Aurora, Colorado experienced the torment of such humorless intensity when a choleric auburn hair-dyed gunman wearing a gas mask and sheathed body armor opened fire in a crowded multiplex packed for the first showing of The Dark Knight Rises.

Source: Solia – The Herald | Fr. Aris P. Metrakos The old paradigms had a certain albeit meager utility. They worked as long as the surrounding culture remained basically Christian.

Unity of the Orthodox in America was not on the conference’s agenda. I find this amazing and shocking. The 14 Patriarchs of the worldwide…

Orthodox Christian Laity | John Collis, M.D. This essay is about an outstanding person and friend, Father Peter Gillquist.

Saint Paul the Apostle Paul was born in the Greek city of Tarsus. His parents gave him the Hebrew name Saul, in honor of…

Source: Diocese of the South of the Orthodox Church in America | Noel Busch July 16-19, 2012 Christ Our Savior Orthodox Cathedral Miami Lakes, Florida From the perspective of a delegate, the “elephant in the room” at the recently convened Assembly of the Diocese of the South (DOS) was the thought that the principal order of business was to have been the nomination of a bishop. With the resignation of Metropolitan Jonah and the suspended status of Fr. Gerasim, one might have expected an agenda in disarray and considerable hand-wringing. To the credit of the nearly one hundred delegates and…

Source: Orthodox Christian Laity OCL is an educational and an advocacy ministry, which has, for a quarter of a century advocated for Orthodox Unity and transparency and accountability in Church Governance. OCL welcomes the statement issued by the Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church in America regarding the resignation of Metropolitan Jonah, which appears to strike a balance between the sensitivity of the matters contained in the statement and the legitimate needs of the faithful to be informed about issues of importance.
