The Orthodox Church.com Now Online

First Forum click here
This is the long-time home for the online writings of the Orthodox Church. We've been writing about The Orthodox Church centuries making it one of the oldest common discussions on the planet. Now we'll take it to the web and weblogs in the blogosphere. This place is our version of talk radio. We'll yap about anything from Ecumenical movements, to technology and faith, to books and culture, politics and news of the day but the Orthodox Faith and Tradition are TOCís lifeblood. We're news junkies who loves to spout off.
         Comments are encouraged. We'll read as many comments as we can even if we donít take part in all discussions. Please, be respectful of others, be intellectually honest, and keep the foul language to yourselves. We welcome spirited discussion. It keeps us on our toes, and through it we all learn from each other. We ask for your patience and prayers as the web team is small for now, but with your support we will grow. We ask for your prayers. Any and all profits from sales on this website go to various Orthodox Charities, these will be listed and detailed (as we make some money).

Sophia (Wisdom)
Word of the Week

hardscrabble \HARD-skrab-uhl\, adjective:
1. Yielding a bare or meager living with great labor or difficulty.
2. Marked by poverty.


Agape (Love)
Quote of the Week

"The gathering together of Orthodox faithful into one flock under the leadership of a single powerful leader, who would be carrying out the agenda of a particular government, will unavoidably lead the Church into becoming nothing more than an organ of that government, and not the means by which mankind achieves salvation."

"Those who speak of a 3rd Rome are totally unsuited to hold leadership positions in the Orthodox Church, because they will play a role in transforming her from a Christ-worshipping faith to a feudalistic organization based upon the exercise of raw power." 

Pray for our Holy Patriarchs


"The Church of Moscow was the Church of the Czarist Empire, and her role within Orthodoxy has diminished as a result of the termination of that Empire; this has resulted in the Patriarchate becoming increasingly animated by Ethnophyletism."
