In just over eight months since our official launch on August 22, we have achieved the unthinkable: 100,000 visitors from 147 countries. Our visitors have come from every country in North America and Europe, Australia, all but some half dozen countries in Asia, all but three or four countries in South America, almost half of the countries in Africa, and from the Phanar and the Vatican.
By “we” we mean first and foremost our tens of thousands of loyal readers around the world and our growing team of amazing writers—now more than 100. We editors are humbled by the realization that we do little more than provide the space for this to happen, and that none of this would be possible without each and every one of you readers and writers.
Please accept this expression of deepest gratitude from us at Orthodoxy in Dialogue. Celebrate this milestone with us in your hearts, for this is your milestone as much as ours as we work together to facilitate the free flow of ideas in the Orthodox Church. Let us give thanks to God for the unmerited blessing of serving Him and His holy Church in this labour. Let us ask His forgiveness for whatever errors in judgment we make along the way.
Christ is risen! Indeed He is risen!
Giacomo Sanfilippo and Kari Edwards, Editors
