This Episode of CS is titled, “Orthodoxy, with an Eastern Flavor.”
At the conclusion of the last episode, I said we’d be continuing our look at the Church in the East by tracking the Gospel’s reach into the FAR East. But when I sat down to compose this session, I realized I’d skipped an important chapter of the story.
Even with this reboot of CS and my desire to clean up the timeline, I’m finding it a challenge to keep the narrative more strictly chronological. See—here’s the challenge in putting together the story of church history. Either we follow the course of the Gospel in one region or we bounce around to different locations and talk about what’s going on in different places at the same time. What we’re ending up doing here is a hybrid of both. I’m trying to track the progress of the Faith in a region for a period of time. But that means some regions only get about a hundred years covered while others may go for a few hundred. And that’s where the confusion can set in.
