"Orthodox Christianity came to North America about 250 years ago and it's just now that we are finally coming out of our shell...in particular the clergy and the laity...we bishops have a way to go"
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..."
Metropolitan Kallistos will explore the future of Orthodoxy in America and offer his thoughts on how the Orthodox Church can more effectively preach the Gospel in today's world.
