Title: Orthodox Herald
Post by: recent convert on August 23, 2007, 01:29:51 PM
In my local area of Northeastern Pa. (USA) there is a down home Orthodox newsletter called the Orthodox Herald and can be read online at http://orthodoxherald.homestead.com/   Hope this is enjoyable.

I often enjoyed reading the Orthodox Herald, especially when I attended Holy Cross. It's as homespun as sweet potato pie with sorghum, and just as dependable.

Pray for us, Fr. Basil! This was the first opportunity I had to read his obituary.

Well, obviously:

This matter was discussed as far back as the year 431, when the whole church met at an Ecumenical Council in Ephesus. This was the Third Ecumenical Council and the 200 bishops who attended decreed that the humanity and Divinity were complete in Jesus Christ. The Coptics did not accept this council.

LOL!  :D

I know, I know...the Herald is very 'quaint', to put a good face on it. For whatever reason, it is very endearing to me.

While hopefully no one will ever base dogma or history on the Herald, it's an interesting snapshot of what goes on in local parishes, and serves as a reality check for those of us in Netodoxy---our parishioners aren't concerned about theologoumena or precise historical information, but more about how to make a better tasting bean soup for fasting days (exactly what Pr. Lori talked to me about before I left this morning, btw!)
