Dialogue Between GOC of Greece and Old Believers
« on: November 29, 2008, 04:55:03 PM »
Here is my rough translation of the first paragraph with help from Google Translate:

On the Theological Dialogue between the PTs [Orthodox Church] of Greece and the RDTs [Russian Old-Orthodox Church]

As part of the Theological Dialogue [on the] 17th and 20th of October (n.s.), 2008, the Holy Metropolis of Mesogaias and Lafreotikis in Koropi held meetings and talks between the Holy Metropolitan of Mesogaias and Lafreotikis Kirykos, as well as the heads of the true Autocephalous Orthodox Church of Cyprus Holy Metropolitan of Kitiou Parfeniya with a delegation of the Russian Old-Orthodox Church of His Holiness Old-Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Alexander, Holy Bishop Sergius of Siberia, and Archpriest Andrey Marchenko.

Comments: The Greek synod is that of Metr. Kirykos, who is a Matthewite bishop. Their website is: http://www.churchgoc.org/index_el.html (in Greek). The Matthewite bishop of Cyprus is Partheniou. This is good news.

Well, I think all serious dialogues are good, but basically you are talking about a bishop that represents an infinitely small portion of "the" GOC on the one hand and a patriarch that represents a very small faction of "the" Old Believers as well.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

  • How can there be any earthly consecrated orthodox bishops during the age of this Great Apostasy?

Dear Fr. Anastasios,

On that I completely agree.

Forgive, John
HIS Judgment Cometh, And That Right Soon! Mark 13:35

If any man be ignorant, let him alone be ignorant (at his own peril). 1 Cor. 14:38

Let us all hope to be found a faithful, loving bond-slave of Christ on the soon approaching Last Day.
