“And they were all together in Solomon’s Portch.” –Acts 5:12
Solomon’s Porch was a colonnaded space within the Jewish temple where the early disciples gathered, witnessed many good works among the people, and were in one accord. And, of course, they talked about it all.
Today we gather to talk in many places. Our blog is one corner of the public square where editors of In Communion post commentary on current issues of concern to Orthodox Christians and advocate for good works of healing and peacemaking among the people.
Solomon’s Porch will consider responses to blog posts as separate submissions. Presently, there will be no option for replies to posts. We will only post what we deem contributes to helpful conversation.
Original posts are made by contributing editors. If you would like to be a Solomon’s Porch contributing editor or know someone you want to recommend, please write to Pieter Dykhorst at [email protected]
Current contributing editors are:
Pieter Dykhorst, editor-in-chief, In Communion
Nicholas Sooy, electronic media editor, In Communion
Jim Forest, editor imeritus, In Communion
