Dear OCL Supporters and Friends, The Orthodox Christian Laity (OCL) movement is the remnant of the optimism of the CEOYLA and GOYA movements which fostered and personified Orthodox Christian Unity.  These groups peaked in the mid-20th Century and then were marginalized by the hierarchy in the 1970’s.  OCL picked up where they left off and was formed in 1987.  OCL is keeping its eye on the prize: Orthodox Christian Unity as The Way Forward.  Otherwise, Orthodox Christianity in the USA will…

Source: Protecting the Orthodox Church Last week, the figurehead Archbishop of the GOA hosted a meeting with the Executive Committee of the Assembly of Canonical Bishops in America. A photo-op meeting at best that supposedly offered a reaffirmation to their commitment of determining “the best path to achieve the ultimate goal of unity.” However, no canonical bishop is willing to be transparent and go on record for saying what unity looks like in America.

Source: ConnectOrthodox.org GLORY TO GOD IN ALL THINGS! We are so excited to announce our theme for Connect 2019! Join us in Atlanta Oct. 4-6 for our third annual Connect Orthodoxy Young Adult Conference as we dive into The Mystery of Faithfulness. Christ teaches us to live a life devoted to others, but our modern culture insists on the importance of self-care and celebrates hedonism. How do we live in the world but not of the world? When faced with the messy reality of relationships, mental health, career choices, church involvement, growth and happiness, how do we apply the paradoxical…
