History of a Union

Once a year news stories are devoted to “Orthodox Christmas.” The stories include a photo or two, mention the different date and, usually, the Julian calendar. On any day little space is given to the history of Orthodoxy in the U.S. A brief essay, focusing on people instead of dates and posted at CNEWA, is a great introduction to the complex origin of the Orthodox Church in America: from “Orthodoxy arrives” to “a new Church.”
