I just found this board and I already see my brotha man Nick is voicing himself.
I've read in some of the other posts that we all seem to have a very similar vision for OO in America (or the West). Let's start that interaction. In Southern CA, there is already a good deal of Syriac-Coptic interaction, and I know that Ethiopians visit the monestary here.
Is anyone else in Southern CA? Any thoughts?
