Any Orthodox in/near Midland, Texas? For at least two years now, there's been an interfaith dialogue presentation in Midland, and there are Catholics, Jews, Hindus, Muslims, and Baptists represented, but no Orthodox.

According to the all-seeing orthodoxyinamerica.org, the Orthodox presence closest to Midland TX is an Antiochian group about 16-18 miles away (distance according to the site), though it seems to be a smallish community that currently meet at a Presbyterian Church.  After that the closest parish is over 100 miles away.

Personally, I've never had a great interesting in dialogue with non-Christian religions. To me the real question is "Should ecumenical dialogue include Protestants, or be limited to just Catholics and Eastern Orthodox (and Oriental Orthodox)?"

You forgot the Nestorians.  Everyone always forgets the Nestorians.

The last time I was at any interfaith event, is what spoiled Orthodoxy for me.  I could not believe what I saw.

Hopefully this one would be better.  St. Seraphim's in Dallas (OCA) or Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox in Dallas may send somebody.

There is also a EO convent in Kemp, TX.   
Milan in Austin.

Also there is a Romanian Church in Dallas, Antiochian, and other Greek churches. 

There is also a ROCOR parish in McKinney TX where the priest would probably be interested in going.  That church is St. Nicholas Orthodox Church.  He has a great domain name, orthodox.net  - somebody may want to give him a call and see if he'd go.

Now that I think about it, the Midland event isn't really "dialogue", that is, two or more individuals talking and listening, and perhaps trying to reach an agreement. It's more a case of individual leaders from different faiths, acting cooperatively in sharing with the public, their answers to often topical questions.

True. And the Old Catholics.
