Renowned Orthodox Writer & Theologian

Metropolitan Kallistos (Ware)

The Future of Orthodoxy

in the United States

Eucharistic Community & Unity: Achieving Both

For more than 15 centuries, Orthodox Christians were defined by their faith and worship, following the Great Commission of Jesus Christ to "...go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit..."

Yet in America, the Ancient Orthodox Church is seen as an “ethnic” church, defined more by the nationality of its members rather than the tenants of the One-True Faith.

Metropolitan Kallistos will explore the future of Orthodoxy in American and offer his thoughts on how a united Orthodox Church can prosper and effectively preach the Gospel in today's world.

Any possibility of this being recorded and available online?

Maximus Daniel,

I think your request is excellent, however I'm just a messenger. Therefore, I suggest you contact St Andrew House at the information provided in the original post.

Just got news, apparently Ancient Faith Radio will be recording it!

He's no friend of the western rite though. Something about it being "unnecessary."
