The English text of the GOC-K Official Response to the absorption of the former SiR is now published. The original Greek text can be found here.

 

NFTU Editor’s Note:

The Official Response is well worth reading.  It does seem to take into account many of the previous points raised against the union. Interestingly, it answers the accusations raised against Met. Agafangel, since it was reported that he stated in an interview-article in the early 1990s that certain Non-Orthodox had true Sacraments.  It brings up the issue of the Serbian Church and Tsar Dushan and their separation from the Church of Constantinople, in the context of the exoneration of the memory of Met. Cyprian (Katsumbas).  Other aspects seem to focus on addressing the questions raised about statements made by the former SiR Bishops and how this relates to the fact that they are now currently members of the GOC-K Synod.
