Please join me in offering a special prayer asking God’s help in enlightening the hierarchs and leadership of all Orthodox jurisdictions in America so that they move forward with their deliberations regarding the establishment of a unified Orthodox Church in America. I realize that we as individuals have little control as to how the work of our leaders proceeds except through the power of prayer and our actions at…
