Halki Seminary

  • DSC00655
    The Patriarchal Theological Seminary of Halki is located on the Turkish island known as Heyelbiada in the Bosporus straits. It was closed in 1971 by the Turkish government and is the subject of much controversy since it is the only seminary in Turkey and the position of Ecumenical Patriarch can only be filled by a Turkish citizen. Sign the petition to reopen it at www.greece.org

Stavros, thanks for visiting. You also have a good site and I welcome your opinions anytime. I will spend time today reading your entries.

Several times I have criticized Orthodox Christian bloggers for staying within their own little world. I see that Orthodox Christians blog with each other but rarely venture outside this world of theirs.

I love that people from all points of view give me their comments and opinions. I welcome and encourage your comments on any of my posts.

Take care and have great day.

Stavros

Welcome aboard. I hope you find something that may interest you on this blog. Your point about Orthodox Christian bloggers is germane. Keep in mind that folks who are truly committed to their faith are not particularly focused on this world and have a very different approach to the world around them. I would like to see them engage others more. I agree with you, it is important to listen and talk to each other. That's how we can learn and perhaps grow as human beings. Good blogging.

Searching for Ithaka

  • Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you're destined for. But don't hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you're old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you've gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to make you rich. Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey. Without her you wouldn't have set out. She has nothing left to give you now. And if you find her poor, Ithaka won't have fooled you. Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, you'll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean. C. P. Cavafy
