Georgian Orthodox Church withdraws from council

June 13, 2016

The Georgian Orthodox Church has joined the Antiochian, Bulgarian, and Serbian Orthodox churches in deciding not to send a delegation to the Holy and Great Council of the Orthodox Church, which is scheduled to begin on June 19 in Crete.

A current lack unity among the Orthodox churches, said a Georgian prelate, contradicts the pan-Orthodox council’s goal, which is “to demonstrate Orthodox unity before the world community and to express the common position of the Orthodox Church on the burning problems of today.”
