AN INTERESTING REFLECTION ON ORTHODOX RENEWAL OUT OF THE UKRAINIAN CRISIS

Пару месяцев назад я уже писал, что предсказать, как будут развиваться события вокруг украинской автокефалии невозможно. Главная проблема не в том, что будут делать стороны, вовлеченные в этот процесс (и конфликт).

The two-day meeting of the Assembly of Bishops of the Serbian Orthodox Church (November 6-7, 2018) was dedicated to three topics - the state in Kosovo and Metohija, the improvement of education in the Serbian Orthodox Church and the Church crisis in Ukraine after the recent decisions of the Patriarchate of Constantinople.

NICKOLAS DENISSENKO

A handful of commentators are wondering what issues might be discussed and resolved at the Ukrainian Council coming in December. My guess is that the council will elect a primate and establish an episcopate, with an All-Church council to follow later in 2019 to continue the unification process. A few items to keep in mind:

A sickness which long afflicted the Ukrainian church had become chronic. That is probably the best way to describe the background to the Ecumenical Patriarch’s historic decision to take responsibility for spiritual affairs in Ukraine.
