Recently, a group of five Antiochian bishops traveled to Damascus to meet with His Beatitude Ignatius IV, Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, about a February 24th decision of the Holy Synod of Antioch affecting the status of the bishops in North America. Following that meeting, Matthew Namee, host of the new podcast American Orthodox History, spent some time talking with His Grace Bishop Basil of the Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America, part of the Self-Ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese in America. You can also read a report from His Grace Bishop Antoun on the Antiochian web site here.
