Are you interested in the issues related to the Great and Holy Council which is scheduled to convene sometime in 2016? You should be. It is your Church too! Why do we not get relevant updates about the work of the Assemblies of Bishops worldwide and updates pertaining to the preparations for the Council on the Assembly of Bishops website? The Church, like the Liturgy, is the work of all the People of God according to their gifts. Creating canonical order is a bottom up and top down enterprise. We should all be receiving clear information regularly on these topics of how to create canonical order. It is our right and duty to expect such communication.
A good first step is to order Orthodox Christianity At The Crossroad: A Great Council Of The Church ? When And Why via amazon.com in print or Kindle format. See the review provided for your consideration by Fr. Ioannis Freeman.
