Welcome (again)!

"Well we movin' on up (moooovin' on up!)..."

Dear Friends,

I'd like to welcome you all to this board, and to this particular folder dealing specifically with the Oriental Orthodox Churches.  While the site in its entirety is about Orthodoxy, Chalcedonian and pre-Chalcedonian, I thought it would be a good idea to have a folder specifically dedicated to discussing issues related to the Oriental Churches, and so it was added soon after the site's birth in May of 2002.  In the six or so months we've been up, it was my pleasure to moderate this forum, to share with you, and to learn from you.  I hope we can continue this in the future.

I'd like to thank Anastasios, our administrator, for his efforts in bringing the site back up, and for his encouragement of this folder, and Nik for starting off the posting before I could welcome anyone.  And Bobby, wherever you are, you really should've remembered to mail the disks.   :P  Incidentally, a few mornings ago, I received a message from him on my computer; apparently he is doing well, and said "Greetings from Italia", but I digress.

God bless you all, and pray for me, a sinner.

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

This thread resurrection is completely gratuitous. Severian, it's about time someone on here intervened to let you know that you're way out of control with this thread resurrection business. Pull yourself together man! hah

Severian,
I believe this http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,2.0.html is, by a matter of hours, the oldest thread on the site.
From my youth have many passions warred against me, but do Thou Thyself defend and save me, O Saviour.

More interesting and more difficult to find is the thread which has lain dormant the longest!

SCAVENGER HUNT!
