Greek Evangelical Fellowship
« on: April 05, 2003, 04:42:55 PM »
I ran across this group on while surfing the internet. Here is ther site: Does anyone know much about them. Here is a description from their site:
We are a Ministry Associated with the North American Synod of the Greek Evangelical Church (A Reformed Church Body) with its roots in both the 16th century reformation (Luther, Calvin Zwingly) as well the Reformation which took place in the Greek speaking world by such great leaders as the Orthodox Patriarch Cyril Loucaris and Zacharias Gerganos.

Based solely on that, these sound like vagantes.
Life is just one disappointment after another.

Cyril Lucaris was a Calvinist, though.  Read The Great Church in Captivity by Runciman for a well-told and highly entertaining account (at some times very sad, though) of all the intrigue that occurred at that time between Jesuits, Protestants, and rival Patriarchs of Constantinople.

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

Hey Anastasios, would you please fix the link?  It doesn't work.  Thanks!
Mor Ephrem should be burned at the stake as we throw feces at his immolated corpse.
