After a two-year break, the Editorial Committee of the International Commission for Anglican–Orthodox Theological Dialogue took place on October 18-23, 2021, in a central hotel in Ierapetra, Crete.
The meeting was attended by Metropolitan Athenagoras of Belgium, Orthodox President (Ecumenical Patriarchate), Protopresbyter George Dragas (Patriarchate of Jerusalem), Professor Bogdan Louvarcic (Patriarchate of Serbia), Professor Nathan Hop (Church of Albania), and Orthodox Secretary Protopresbyer Christos Christakis.
On the Anglican side were Archbishop Richard Clark, Anglican President, Bishop Norwich Graham, and clergymen Allison Joyce, Sarah Rowland Jones, Neil Weigers, and Anglican Secretary William Adam.
The committee drafted the next text on euthanasia and the end of life and prepared this text for the next plenary session. The committee also began studying the following issues; organ donation and transplantation and marriage.
The committee was warmly hosted by Metropolitan Kyrillos of Ierapytni and Sitia, and expressed gratitude to him and his associates, and especially to his Protosyncellus, Archim. Ambrosios Skarvelis.
The members of the Committee visited the Holy Patriarchal and Stavropegian Toplou Monastery of Panagia Akrotiriani and Saint Ioannis the Theologian in Sitia, where they had lunch and were guided by the Abbot of the Monastery, Archim. Ambrosios, and the former Abbot, Archim. Philotheos.
They were also shown around the church museum of the Monastery and admired the important exhibits from its rich history.
The next meeting of the plenary session of this Dialogue will take place in the Holy Monastery of Penteli in Athens in October 2022.
