While the site you list is often "good".... it is often also rather skewed in its reporting of news.  It definitely is not impartial.

My favorite site is this one.  www.orthodoxchristianity.net


Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Hymns on Paradise by St Ephrem the Syrian
“Steel isn't strong, boy, flesh is stronger! That is strength, boy! That is power! What is steel compared to the hand that wields it?  Contemplate this on the tree of woe.” - Elder Thulsa Doom of the Mountain of Power

Mencius said, “Instruction makes use of many techniques. When I do not deign to instruct someone, that too is a form of instruction.”

Aha thanks, I figured it was him.

Unless I'm wrong, seems like a lot of those Orthodox bloggers have stuck with posting on FB these days.

Yeah, it has borged most things.

I guess if I was going to give an actual website, it would be tie between Fr. Aidan's blog (which was shared here already) and Orthodox Arts Journal.

tfw not educated enough to confidently recommend thinags :(

I will say though that Bible Illustrated by Bojan Teodosevic and his side channel Bible Illustrated Hands excellently paint the basics of Orthodoxy and clarifications of certain things quite well. He's talented and funny.

I like Fr. Spyridon and Archimandrite Philip channels too.

I think she means they report only one side of the MP/EP controversy, but that only makes sense being a Russian Orthodox site.

Well, IMO they do it in an unscrupulous tabloid fashion. It's one thing to have a bias, and another to just uncritically share propaganda. I am critical of the EP's actions and new doctrine but I will not trust something from orthochristian.com unless I can verify it elsewhere.

The answer depends on whether you believe Ukrainian is just a weird dialect of Russian or the golden-honeyed speech of the pure descendants of St. Volodymyr Veliki. :D
