One of my last "acts" as a priest was to appear in the panel discussion of a conference set up by the Chicago parish of St. John the Forerunner (GOC-Old Calendarist) in Sept. 2012. Our local contact arranged for myself, Mr. Jackson, and one other person to speak about our conversions to Orthodoxy. Mr. Jackson put time in to do a practice run, and the actual talk, and hung around despite a lot of technical difficulties we had setting up the program. The point is, he is willing to help anyone, even us big, bad GOC types, for the sake of Orthodoxy. He really is a nice and pleasant person, and pious.
