Here is one thing I would like to see happen and this could work out more than you know
To have the various jurisdictions share in sunday school and adult church education programmes.
Share money to carry out Matthew 25 ministries.
Share money or consolidate Summer Camps (PA has three or four in various jurisdictions)
Share money for evangelisation
The church in Poland was granted autochephaly in 1924 and the argument that that political system and the borders don't exist today and it just faded per se.
So a union having the "one American Church) is a tough one. Countries come and go. The church remains.
Instead of having so many programmes and such spread out in various jurisdictions limits us more than having a church united in American Culture. We are already united at the chalice.
Make the strides I wrote about above first before putting a puzzle together that is missing key pieces and so forth.
I don't really know if the more recently converted or those who live in areas Orthodoxy is newer, say 30 years, realise that still the Ukies won't go to the Carpie church up the street and the Russians won't go to that church etc... even though their ancestors hail from the same villages in the old world... this still exists and these churches are often not too far apart geographically.
let alone the Greek Catholics hailing from the same villages originally!
Places like Clymer, PA have four, maybe five parishes all originating from the same initial congregation - not to mention the next coal patch over the ridge with its own cacaphony of competing gold and blue domes.
I don't remember if I posted this anecdote here or not, but there is an old story about a Galician boy who wanted to become a sailor - even though his homeland was landlocked. He joined the Navy and his ship sank in the Pacific during the war. He swam to a nearby deserted island and was the only human living there. Years later he was rescued and the Captain of the rescuing ship marvelled about the four churches he saw on the island. He asked the man why so many churches for only one person on the island. The man replied, I used to go to the other ones before the first, second and third split.
