Endings: Death and Defrockery

Next Step #228 – October 18, 2012

Patriarch Torkom Manoogian passes; Guest Commentary by Dr. Harry Hagopian. Politics in the Church? Never more pronounced – While a priest who brings people to the Armenian Church is defrocked, another clergyman who preaches non-Orthodox theology is granted a churchman’s award. Make sense? The balance has tipped, more people checking off “None.” Can Love be Irrelevant? Or are we not presenting it properly? Follow up to Ani Bubles’ wedding.
