So I have started work with a number of other people on the influence of Saint Maximos the Confessor on both the east and the west.  We have started by reading The Experience of God, the six-volume dogmatics of Fr. Dumitru Stăniloae.  The goal is to examine some of the issues that might be controversial, or that may lead to a more fruitful rapport between the Christian East and West.  Another goal is to elevate the discussion past the banal discussions concerning US policy as it pertains to the church.

Feel free to join us here.
