Now, in regards to evangelism, I think this makes it in some way more complicated. If there will be a future unity, who gets authority over which churches? If a church is set up in a more EO country, should the EO get it no matter who did the mission work? And vise versa: should the OO get a church in OO lands whether they have done the work or not? These are issues we will have to sort out, either now, or when a reunion takes place. Though, after the reunion, no such problem will exist, of course!
Actually, why unite AFTER the preaching, when we can unite before any further work is done?
Anyways, how are the Churches going to be sorted if the two Churches unite? The way the EO Church is structured + a few more Patriarchates for India and Ethiopia/Eritrea/Armenia, and the combined Patriarchates (Antioch, Alexandria) will be merged?
Also, is this feasible within the years we are going through?
