In the main, I agree with the author's call for greater unity, increased dialogue, et cetera. (Is the author also the OP in this thread?) There are also a few points, however, on which I disagree. For example, I find his rather harsh appraisal of the Roman Catholic churches deriving from the Malankara tradition on the one hand and his overly charitable assessment of the Protestant churches deriving from the same tradition on the other to be disingenuous and perhaps colored by his jurisdictional affiliation. I believe it is a mistake to count the "Mar Thoma" church as a "church of Oriental Orthodox origin" while simultaneously characterizing the Malankara Catholic churches as usurpers or some sort of foreign threat. Both are the fruit of Western missionary efforts which tore apart the indigenous Oriental Orthodox community of Kerala, both teach heterodoxy, both have lead the Orthodox faithful astray, and both claim to be the true heirs of St. Thomas and his teaching while that title rightfully belongs to the Orthodox. If anything, the Protestant churches are further afield than the Catholics. Protestant influence - particularly Evangelical and Charismatic "praise & worship" music, practices and literature - is one of the biggest threats facing our Oriental Orthodox Communion today, and Indian Orthodox youth who come home from activities with the "Mar Thoma" church thinking it is okay to make these things a part of our practice need to be protected against such through right teaching.
