Even though there has been OCL.org news, with the June 20, 2013 announcement that, in northeast Tennessee, Holy Resurrection Antiochian Orthodox Church and Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church are being brought together into one, united Orthodox church community, convened under the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese, with the parish priest being Fr. Stephen Mathewes, who remains a priest of the Antiochian Archdiocese (a grass roots solution for Orthodox unity in N.A.), nothing new has happened regarding the ROEA (OCA-Vatra) and ROAA (BOR) unity/merger issue.

This is because ROEA “Due Diligence” questions have yet to be answered by the ROAA.  In fact, at the 80th Annual ROEA Episcopate Congress held September 28-29, 2012 in Detroit Michigan, our JDC ( Dialogue Commission) described the communication as being at a “stalemate”, and talks at an impasse.

Therefore, the May 2012 Administrator article remains valid.

PRAYER OF ST. EPHREM

O Lord and Master of my life,
leave me not with the spirit of laziness,
of despair, of domination, or idle words.

Rather, give me, your servant, the spirit of integrity,
of humility, of patience, and of love.

Thus, Lord, grant me the wisdom to see my own faults,
and not condemn my brother;

for You are blessed, now and forever. Amen.



OUR FATHER

Our Father, who are in heaven,
hallowed be Your name.

Your kingdom come.
Your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us this day
our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those
who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
