Orthodoxy in Dialogue has recently added a Patrons page. With gratitude to God we have acquired our first two Patrons, who wish to remain anonymous. They have shown their support for our work by making a significant financial contribution.

We launched almost eight months ago with the sole intention of serving the Orthodox Church through the provision of a forum for free and open dialogue on an unlimited range of topics. In that time we quickly became one of the most visited Orthodox blogs on the internet, and have published 198 articles and editorials by 97 authors. See our Archives by Author for the complete catalogue of articles and authors.

Our Letters to the Editors page has proven more popular than we expected. We have published 16 letters to date. The page ranks among our top ten “articles.”

In particular we have gained a reputation as perhaps the main online Orthodox forum for the discussion of sexual and gender diversity in human nature and in life transfigured in and through the Church by uncreated grace. Approximately one quarter of our articles to date touch on some aspect of sexuality and gender. Whether our readers agree or disagree with what we publish, or prefer to reserve judgment, we are gratified by the sheer volume of discussion that has been generated around the world: we believe that the Church is poorly served by forbidden topics and suppressed voices.

If you support what we do, and would like to inquire about how to become a Patron of Orthodoxy in Dialogue, contact us in confidence at

Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
