I think the Forum has fallen into dis-use because so many people express their opinions about Eastern Christianity on Facebook. This forum is a better place because the discussions are moderated and repetitious discussions are minimal.

I have no idea! He disappeared without a clue, as it were.

I hope and pray that he is well.

I suspect he is busy painting over the "I" in all the Kiev signs. Also, generally but hilariously fomenting insurrection and destabilization of political order. I am sure the Russians are keeping an eye on him. LOL. grin

I hope he is well!

Absolutely correct, Dr Henry - particularly as regards the repetitious and unmoderated nature of FB threads. The threads there go off topic in a matter of a few posts and, albeit we've certainly answered some questions a score of times here over the years, one can find oneself answering the same questions there a score of times over a month - particularly since there's no easy way to find and point someone to an earlier thread on the same topic. Additionally, while the majority of inquirers who make their way here are seriously interested in the East, the Byz Catholic group on FB is amuck with folks who are just intrigued by our 'differences'.

Many years,

Neil
