A Stink in the Schema

A few weeks ago, Joel Kalvesmaki published an essay with difficult but necessary questions regarding the Orthodox Church in America (O.C.A.) and its leadership crisis. Monomakhos posted it: “Did the OCA Bishops Lie about Metropolitan Jonah?” Kalvesmaki is a serious scholar and a fine man; one ought to consider his words.

I last wrote about the mess in the O.C.A. over the summer in “Orthodox Immaturity.” Over the last four months, the situation has become even less clear. Who knows when the long suffering members of the O.C.A. will get a synod worth their mitres?

Update: Though Dr. Kalvesmaki was elected by his parish to be their alternate representative at the upcoming O.C.A. council in Parma, he has been barred from attending due to his open letter: “A Bishop’s Response.”
