An Early Glimpse Inside the Metropolitan Council

Here is a very informative blog post  by Fr. Ted Bobosh, parish priest of St. Paul the Apostle Orthodox Church in Dayton, Ohio.  It describes a meeting he attended at the conclusion of the All American Council between the new Metropolitan, the Metropolitan Council and the Synod of Bishops.  As an outsider I have a hard time understanding why such a meeting seems so unusual, but then, I never was a witness to the weird workings of the Theodosius or Herman administrations.   In the B.J. days (‘before Jonah’), divisiveness and secrecy meant that no one talked with each other, there were no conciliar decisions.   Anyone who has ever been on parish council, run a business or even made family decisions knows you just can’t do it in secrecy or without working together.  That is just a no-brainer.  Thank God we’re in the A.J. days now and a lack of self-interest and openness are the standards we will expect our hierarchy to uphold.
