An Orthodox Christian perspective on the Cross of Christ
Dear Parish Faithful & Friends in Christ,The issue of "atonement" was raised and discussed at Sunday's post-Liturgy discussion, and we could only touch on it briefly. That discussion, though, has led me to once again share a meditation from the past (2013) on that theme worked out with an eye on briefly explaining our Orthodox perspective - turning to the Scriptures and the Fathers - within the wider context of how we react to other theories of the atonement that seem problematic to us.
