Fall/October-December Issue was mailed the weekend of 11/12/2011

Since this blog is an experiment, we'll keep it simple to start. It is an open blog, in that anyone can post without having to sign in or have a password, even people who have not read the issue or are not members of OPF. If at any point this becomes an issue due to random or inappropriate posts, we'll make it a members only blog. Leaving the blog open allows visitors to read what we're up to and even find their way to our website to read the latest issue and come back to post, or maybe even join OPF. The rules are simple: please comment only on the latest issue of In Communion and its contents and leave your first name and last initial. Other forums exist for discussions of various types. Our desire here is merely to extend the opportunity to think, share, and discuss what is in the journal (or what could or should be, in the future). Thank you for your participation, and it is our hope that this blog in some small way extends the peace of Christ as all of our efforts through the Orthodox Peace Fellowship are intended to do.

Comment on our Poetry, and PLEASE consider submitting a poem for a future issue

Comment on Thanksgiving: our inside back cover was left deliberately open as many of our members do not live in the US or celebrate the US holiday of Thanksgiving; however, sharing a meal, giving thanks, and acknowledging God's provision is a universal human experience

Comment on our book reviews

Comment on our news section, perhaps especially on Syria and the situation for Christians there or on the IOCC and the situation in East Africa
