Well, I wasn't trying to knock what you were saying in particular, Justin, but I know how easy it is for all of us to get into the '(My Jurisdiction) uber alles' mindset. We all have something to offer The Church and none of us are perfect. Personally, I hope for the day that we see a OCA-ROCOR merger, as I think that would cement the best things about both and get rid of the excesses of either. I don't think we'll see that happen anytime soon, but my hope remains.
And it is the same for the rest of the American jurisdictions. People like to joke that all that the GOA can offer is money, but Elder Ephraim is almost singlehanded responsible for the current flowering of monasticism in America, and Archbishop DEMETRIUS (Traketellis) is a very holy man doing the best job he can to preserve the GOA from attack within and without with the EP and GOAL/VOITHIA/OCL.
I would say the Antiochians have lost a bit of their "salt" recently, but this is out of their zeal at bringing THOUSANDS of american protestants into The Church. With that kind of influx, it is inevitable that it will flavor some of their actions, but I have no doubts of their mission. Look at Ben Lomond in the late 80's - they had a piano playing 'Just As I Am' during communion! They have made major steps and will continue to make major steps. I have high hopes for their project to translate the LXX. In a perfect world, it would be combined with the Orthodox New Testament published by the convent in Colorado and have the previous OSB:NT notes heavily heavily revised.
We're all in this journey together, and to pretend otherwise is to ignore reality. May God have mercy upon us all and bless our efforts to serve His Church!
