Orthodox Christian Social Action Networks

When I began this weblog I lamented the fact that there did not seem to be (as far as I could see, searching online) any networks uniting Orthodox Christians in coordinated social action, in which our collective expertize and resources could be pooled together to increase the effectiveness of our efforts. I found no web pages where I could find resources on disability, for instance. With  the encouragement of Fr. Ted Pulcini, and the blessing of His Grace Bishop Thomas, I created this blog as a way to begin filling that gap.

But now it is clear that the gap is being addressed. Praise the Lord, His Church is on the move! Take a look:

Orthodox Diaconia http://www.iocc.org/orthodoxdiakonia/index.php?id=p7

Focus North America: Fellowship of Orthodox Christians United to Serve http://www.focusnorthamerica.org/

The Self-Ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America’s introduction to Focus North America http://www.antiochian.org/node/19146

I for one am greatly heartened at these initiatives. Let us water these newly planted trees, that they may bear good fruit!
