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

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.
