No Metropolitan Yet

jm_frjohn

It’s currently about 1:15 p.m. in Pittsburgh and the first ballot cast for the new Metropolitan has been tallied within the last hour or two.  According to the reporting by Ancient Faith Radio, no candidate received the 2/3 required majority and a second ballot will be taken.  No information has been received yet as to when that ballot will be taken or whether it has already occurred.    While you’re waiting, go to Ancient Faith Radio and listen to a fascinating Ancient Faith Radio interview with Fr. John Erickson that was conducted during the tallying of the first ballot this morning.  He gives a very thorough explanation of the election process.

    I am so intrigued by this election. I every few minutes scour the internet looking for any news. I can’t wait to see who!

    Well you don’t have to wait anymore Troy – I just posted the election results. But I do agree with you 100% about this election. In 17 years as an Orthodox Christian, I have never felt so connected to or interested in anything at the national church level. This is the most exciting thing I have witnessed ever in church life. I give so much credit to all our hierarchs and clergy for holding the Council early and with such openness. If this scandal has done anything, it’s been a wakeup call that good church government must be open and honest. This has been a cleansing and a renewal that we have all waited for.
