Salve Brothers & Sisters,

I am new to this forum, but I have been reading posts for about 6 months. I have seen some posts that run the gambit from extremely "nationalist" in natural to the more inclusive. I want to post this Question:

How would forming an Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Catholic discussion group on a local level (ie. Lay members of different churches meeting to discuss differences and common ground theology) foster understanding and respect between our lay members and in turn our churches? How would one start such a discussion group? I know of the Pontifical councils that OUR churches participate in..But i'm talking about on a local level.. I will welcome ALL criticism AND praise.

Yours in Christ,
"one body and one Spirit, as you were also called to the one hope of your call..one Lord, one faith, one baptism..one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all" -Ephesians 4:4-6

If I wanted to do something like that, I'd set up a meeting place/time, go to the local Churches and ask if you can put a date/time in the bulleting, and see if it works out...  if you publish it, they will come...
"as [you've] informed us that respect chills love, it is natural to conclude that all your pretty flights arise from your pampered sensibility; and that, vain of this fancied preeminence of organs, you foster every emotion till the fumes, mounting to your brain, dispel the sober suggestions of reason. It is not in this view surprising that when you should argue you become impassioned, and that reflection inflames your imagination instead of enlightening your understanding." - Mary Wollstonecraft
