The Dialogue between the Church of the G.O.C. of Greece and the Orthodox Ecclesiastical Community of Those in Resistance
First Joint Statement
On December 29, 2012/January 11, 2013 in the Holy Monastery of Sts. Cyprian and Justina in Phylē, Attica, the first meeting occurred of the committees for dialogue of the Church of the G.O.C. of Greece with the Orthodox Community of Those in Resistance. All of the designated members of the committees were present except His Grace, Bishop Ambrose of Methonē, who was absent due to weather conditions in South Ossetia.
This first meeting had mostly a formal and procedural character; official synodal documents were exchanged through which the members of the respective committees were approved, the proposed operation regulations were approved, and the members of the secretariat were appointed.
In continuation, after lengthily discussion in a cordial, fraternal climate, an agenda was set based on which the two committees will systematically work preceded by the discussion of ecclesiological issues. The agenda may be revised during the course of the discussion with the consent of the two sides.
From the Joint Secretariat of the Committees for Dialogue.
