New Resources for those interested in Christianity in Arabic-speaking Cultures

Over on the side-bar I've added a few new resources for those with an interest in Greek Orthodox Christianity (or Rum Orthodox, if you prefer) in Arabic-speaking cultures.

In North America we speak of the Antiochian Orthodox Church, but in Syria and Lebanon, it is known as the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and All The East (or in perhaps more literal translation of Arabic - Antiochian and All the East Patriarchate for Rum [Roman] Orthodox).

I have taken off the link to the North American Antiochian Archdiocese until it 'normalizes' its relations with the Patriarchate with respect to the June Synod clarifications (wry grin). Links to the N.A. Archdiocese can be reached through the His Grace Bishop Joseph's website for the Diocese of L.A. and the West, which I commend to you for thoughts, speeches, sermons, and liturgical materials.
