An Anglican and Orthodox Dialogue

This is from the Anglican and Orthodox dialog that happened some days ago at Nashotah House.(A highchurch and Anglo-Catholic Episcopal/Anglican seminary). From the looks of it, the conservative Anglicans of the ACNA just want to be friends, whereas the OCA Orthodox want a marriage, but in order to do that the Anglicans must reject/renounce Calvinism, and that is something (as a whole) they will probably not do.

The ACNA seems to have embraced all 7 councils whereas before the Episcopal/Anglicans only embraced the first 4, so they made a huge improvement, but you can tell that they don't want full communion.......they just want to be friends. But for the OCA Orthodox being friends isn't good enough.

The audio is from AncientFaith Radio.

As seen from Nashotah's website:


"Nashotah, WI, September 1, 2009 – An ecumenical conference between scholars of the Anglican and Eastern Orthodox traditions will be held at Nashotah House Theological Seminary on October 8-10, 2009. Entitled “In the Footsteps of Tikhon and Grafton - Anglican and Orthodox Identity, Ministry and Mission in the 21th Century,” the Anglican-Orthodox Conference will feature discussions and addresses by representatives of Nashotah House and St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in Yonkers, NY, together with several worship services representing the spiritual riches of both traditions. The conference will conclude with the signing of a “Covenant Partnership,” pledging continued prayer, fellowship and ecumenical cooperation between the two schools.

Speakers will include the His Beatitude, Metropolitan Jonah, Orthodox Metropolitan of All America and Canada, who is President of the St. Vladimir’s Board of Trustees, and the Very Rev. Chad Hatfield, an alumnus of Nashotah House who is now Chancellor of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary. The Conference is free and open to the public but advance registration is required. For more information, telephone Fr. Steve Schlossberg, Director of Communications, at (262) 646-6506.

“St. Vladimir's Seminary is committed to working out a new relationship with Nashotah House that honors our common legacy and heritage,” says Fr. Hatfield. “Together we can take the work and witness or our forefathers and reclaim the voice of Christian orthodoxy that this world is starving to hear once again. Not to do so would be to fail to build upon the foundations of both seminaries and the two traditions that they represent. Now is the time to act boldly, and together we will in common witness to the truth of the Gospel of our Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ. May it be blessed.”

The Very Rev. Dr. Robert S. Munday, Dean and President of Nashotah House expressed his conviction that this new relationship between the two seminaries “is an important step in furthering a renewal of Anglican—Orthodox ecumenical dialogue, which is the oldest ecumenical dialogue between Christian traditions." Dean Munday added, "It is particularly appropriate that Nashotah House should resume the ecumenical efforts begun over 100 years ago by Bishop Charles Grafton (2nd Bishop of Fond du Lac and Chairman of the Nashotah House Board of Trustees) and Saint Tikhon of Moscow (who was archbishop of the Orthodox Church in America, and who was made an honorary Doctor of Divinity by Nashotah House in 1905, later becoming Patriarch of Moscow and head of the Russian Orthodox Church)."

Founded in 1842 as a mission to the American frontier, and chartered by the state of Wisconsin in 1847 as a “college of learning and piety,” Nashotah House is Wisconsin’s oldest institution of higher learning. “The Mission,” as the seminary is locally known, provides degree programs for men and women called to pastoral and leadership ministries throughout the worldwide Anglican Communion of Churches."
