Group Description

This forum is for ordained clergy of the Orthodox Church (clergy whose bishops are in communion with the Great Churches of Constantinople, Antioch, Jerusalem, Alexandria and Moscow) to discuss pastoral issues and the general understanding of paranormal activity as it may be encountered in our communities. This includes angelic appearances, human apparitions or demonic activity. Non-clerical field experts may be invited to the forum at the discretion of the moderator.

All activity of the forum is guided by the dogmas of the Orthodox Church. All posts are strictly confidential and not for distribution. This is an educational forum, and so inquiry is encouraged. Those with a propensity towards 'flaming,' impolite discourse or ad hominem attacks will be removed. Clarity is preferred over agreement, but disagreement should always be done with mutual respect.

All topics pertaining to the post-mortem human activity, death and the dying process, angelic phenomenon, demonic attack, unexplainable (by 'natural laws') activity, services of the Church, etc. are fair game, as well as literature pertaining to these.

I (the moderator) coined the term 'Ruachology' from the Hebrew word for 'spirit' (ruach). 'Pneumatology' is devoted to the study of the Holy Spirit, so I could not use that to express the study of 'bodiless powers' and entities.

Since this topic is little convered in our seminaries, it is natural that many clergy have questions or need advice. It is my hope that this forum can be a place of mutual education and encouragement.
