The Ukrainian Orthodox Church (UOC) is planning to start a dialogue with the UOC of Kyiv Patriarchate in order to resume unity in Ukrainian orthodoxy, information from the official website of the UOC.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the Holy Synod at the Pochayiv Lavra monastery on September 9, which was chaired by Metropolitan of Kyiv and all Ukraine Volodymyr (Sabodan). The UOC press service said that a working group had been created and tasked to prepare for holding a dialogue with representatives of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of Kyiv Patriarchate, which is considered among Orthodox believers as non-canonical.

May the Holy Spirit guide the Ukrainian Church to Unity in Christ.

Grant this O Lord!

I thought the day would never come before the current KP leader left this world.

Let us pray that these talks do not founder.

A most positive development - it will bear close watching and prayerful support.

I'm not too well-informed about this issue, but wouldn't it be Moscow who really needs to make the concessions so this can work?

I don't think it will be so much a matter of concessions, so much, as rather a willingness to listen on the part of the Church. It will be interesting to see how these talks pan out, but I think that we can rest assured that the subject of autocephaly will not even enter the picture. Rus cannot and will not be divided.

I hope that they will keep ALL the politicians out of the talks.
