The 15th All-American Council of the OCA
« on: November 08, 2008, 07:57:35 PM »
For the 15th All-American Council of the Orthodox Church in America, whose first task will be the election of our next Metropolitan, and whose primary focus will be (hopefully) on reevaluating our mission to North America, that we may begin in earnest the process of healing from the scandals that have recently rocked our foundation...

Agenda for the Council (November 10-13):

Lord, have mercy.

Lord have mercy! This morning we prayed for the Council, although we are Antiochean (many of us were received by the OCA).
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Lord have mercy.  We prayed about this in our Serbian parish today!  A good sign of cross-jurisdictional sympathies.

Excellence of character, then, is a state concerned with choice, lying in a mean relative to us, this being determined by reason and in the way in which the man of practical wisdom would determine it. Now it is a mean between two vices, that which depends on excess and that which depends on defect.

Evidently on Ancient Faith Radio they are going to cast the proceedings.
