When I began this weblog I lamented the fact that I could not find (as far as I could see, searching online) any networks uniting Orthodox Christians in coordinated social action, in which our collective expertise 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 since then I have found that the Church has been addressing this matter. 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/
I for one am greatly encouraged by these initiatives.
