Your opinion on a new sticky thread
« on: February 09, 2010, 09:30:58 PM »
I've never done a poll before.  I hope I'm doing it right.   :)

Recently, after finding some online lectures by Fr. Findikyan of St. Nersess Seminary, I thought it may be a good idea to add a new sticky thread to the OO section for links to lectures and sermons by Oriental Orthodox clergy.  The lectures and sermons which are linked could be written, audio, or video.  I think there is a lot out there, and it would be nice to have a central place to access them.

Do people think it would be a good idea?

I don't understand why this would be a "sticky thread." ???

So it can stay at the top of the forum even when there are no replies??

I think that's a great idea. I don't know much about the OO, so having access to resources would be wonderful.

What Ukie said.   :)

That way it would easier to find, access, and continue to supplement over time.

I think it'd be a great resource. We don't have any OO parishes in the Ozarks (or, if I'm not mistaken, in all of Missouri), so I don't get the opportunity to hear what our estranged brothers and sisters have to say.

Oh? Is there a list somewhere I can look up? We go to St. Louis fairly often (every couple of months or so), and I'd like to see what an OO church is like.

Sounds like a great idea. I would love to read some sermons from H.H. St. Pope Kyrillos VI.

As of now, there are 11 votes in favor, and none opposed. I guess it must be a good idea.   :)  I'll go ahead and start the thread.

I've started the thread and I posted some resources.  I don't want to be the only one, though.  Other people need to also post some links.   :)
