Fr Thomas Hopko - Sep 3rd to 6th, 2004 Part 2 - Faith and Church Unity

In his second lecture, Fr. Hopko discussed the topic, "Faith and Church Unity" which is Christ's desire and the hope of all faithful Christians. He listed the difficulties facing unity, whether they relate to acceptable theological expressions or exchanged "anthemas" between the different Churches. In addition, the division of the Eastern and Western Churches was provoked by historical and political factors and accumulated painful experiences, which could not be overcome in various reconciliatory meetings. But we should not give up, and perhaps if the unity could be achieved between the two Orthodox families, as their theological differences regarding the Nature of Christ has been minimized, then this may be a beginning that encourages further efforts to achieve unity with other Churches. After this introduction, Fr. Hopko responded to all the questions of the attendants regarding church unity.
