Re: [orthodox-synod] Repose of Father Neil Connaught

If you have time, write me more about him, and how he handled difficulties
of refractory parishioners.
A major part of my pastoral life I had to deal with difficult parishioners and
unpleasant council meetings and lack of episcopal support and concern.
Thank God now I don't have the former but just the latter. Still, I wonder
how priests deal with such situations because it adds to one's knowledge
and depth of understanding.
