This may sound weird but you would think out of the thousands of priest out there that we would get more coming to this board seeing it's probably the most popular place on the net for Orthodox Christians. I don't know what it's like being a priest but I could imagine many of them would really enjoy discussing church issues & theology etc. & this seems like a good place to do that.

it's funny because my priest is actually registered but has never posted and never really comes (that i know of) - not because there is anything wrong w/ the board, but because he is far too busy running a parish. i sense this is the case with many, if not most priests.

i noticed you have a lot of questions regarding the faith. my advice is to seek out a priest near you to visit with and to whom you can ask your questions (when i did this it was a huge step for me and clarified many things i was confused about before). if you need help finding a parish near you, there are various websites that have orthodox church parish directories (you can search the old threads for some of the links, but here is the only one i know off the top of my head - www.oca.org). hope this helps Smiley

His Grace, Bishop Tikhon (of the OCA DoW, SF & LA) hangs out on the Indiana Listserv.  It has a fair amount of traffic, but is a little less friendly than this board and the archaic Listserv environment really discourages use.  It really is not user friendly.  I don't see why they don't upgrade to a phpBB like most others.

If I were a priest I doubt I'd post on boards.  People would use me in subsitute of a spiritual father or their father confessor.  Plus my advice/opinions may be different than people's own pastors, which could cause problems.

Well, there seem to be a lot of priests posting on Monachos.net.

Very astute observation or opinion. In point of fact, to answer the original question, yes, there are priests who are not only visitors here, but who are also active posters. I suspect you've keyed in on exactly why they choose to remain incognito, so to speak. I know I would remain hidden in the crowd if I were in their place. Fortunately I can just be a normal sinner and post away.

Ha! That's an understatement to end all understatements...
