I've seen reports around the net (e.g., here
) saying that "Bishop Vicken Aykazian" of "the Diocese of the Armenian Church of America" is now president-elect of the NCC. However, the NCC's homepage
says that "The Rev. Michael E. Livingston, Executive Director of the International Council of Community Churches, was installed Nov. 10 as the new President of the National Council of Churches USA". Am I missing something?
Also, does anyone know to what extext the following paragraph reflects reality?
There was "profound anxiety" about the future of their own ecumenical involvements, Kishkovsky said. However, Edgar visited leaders of the other Orthodox churches and had largely relieved such anxieties. Through the meetings, the NCC found that it must "become better acquainted and more deeply informed about the lives and processes" of sister communions. - Source
It would be disheartening if the Antiochians left the NCC, but the OCA, GOA, etc. had no plans of eventually following them (especially after all the rumors about the OCA being on the verge of leaving).
