Very nice to see St. Vladimir's Seminary hosting a joint symposium of Eastern and Oriental Orthodox.  I know they've done this in the past too, but there needs to be more of it--with the average EO and OO layman invited.  We have more in common, e.g., a shared ecclesiology, than that which divides us.
