- God bless you, Fr. Basil from Canberra, and protect you in your coming surgery!
Indeed, your words on dialogue are well spoken. With Bishop
Gabriel's blessing, I expect perhaps early next year to enter into
"dialogue" with some United Methodists in this part of the country.
Rest assured that we will not be seeking autocephaly from them, or
offering in any way to compromise the Orthodox Faith! Rather, the
difficult question (and the more guidance I get the happier I will
be) is how, indeed, to approach such a meeting making it clear from
the very outset that there can be NO compromise in matters of the
Faith without effectively slamming the door before it gets open.
--Fr. Gregory Williams
