folks I am just wondering, what would a real reunion between EO-OO look like, I ask because while we are close, overtime we still developed our own Traditions, and even have our own saints, also is there anything either would have to give up? I pray for unity, especially with all the chaos in the Middle East, and parts of Africa, however I am just realistically trying to understand what a unified EO-OO Church would look like.
Not that different from now, probably, at least in terms of praxis. I'd assume the only way a reunion would work would be for everybody to adopt a live and let live policy re: pious customs/liturgy. Attempted Byzantinization (and let's be honest, it would be the EOs who would insist on adoption of their traditions for reunion) would scuttle any hope of unity fast.
Despite going to a Greek Church, I can concede, it would be us who try to impose a byzantinization on the Oriental Orthodox, the OO's should just be left to have their own traditions, and just call it Armenian Rite, Coptic rite, Syriac Rite, Etc.
