Some background on the BOC

BOC and Copts
Having been fortunate enough to have been at the opening of the Cathedral of St. George, I was struck by the good relations between the BOC and the Copts. The latter seem genuinely pleased that we wish to share the Faith they have so bravely guarded. There is none of the ethnic exclusivity I have encountered with some Eastern Orthodox.

When I contacted the Coptic Chaplain at my university to tell him that Abba Seraphim was coming locally to give a talk, he simply asked me for the details and said that he and his congregation were interested in coming.

It may be that this is a rose-tinted view, but I can only speak as I find, and that is as described.

In Christ

John

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
