Here is a description of the website.  The seem to have some good patristic resources.

Welcome to the Watchful Gate.  This site is the result of several peoples study and experiences in trying to find
reality in contemplative spirituality.  Many of us have traveled through many typically modern spiritual searches
and practices.  We have been traditional Christians and Buddhists or non-traditional minimalists seeking after
 the essence of things (e.g. via Gurdjieff, Krishnamurti, or our entirely own non-dual perspective).  Some of us in
the process have become Orthodox Christians, and discovered a wealth of understanding that many seekers
of contemplative spirituality are unaware of, but in our opinion, truly have need of.

orthodoxchristianity.net is older, and it still works!   This is about Orthodoxy, if you don't have staying power then you're irrelevant!
