[[Image:Long_john.jpg|frame|right|This is a picture of me from a few years ago. My beard is a little fuller now.]]'''I am the founding Sysop of OrthodoxWiki.org.''' You can contact me by leaving a message on my [http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/User_talk:FrJohn discussion page], or clicking the [http://www.orthodoxwiki.org/index.php?title=Special:Emailuser&target=FrJohn E-mail this user] link in the "toolbox" on the sidebar.

We have a great team of moderators on OrthodoxWiki. However, if you have serious concerns about an article and need a quick response, I'd encourage you to let me know directly. I'm not omniscient.
__NOTOC__
==About Me==
I am a [[priest]] in the [[Orthodox Church in America]] and a Ph.D. student at the [[Wikipedia:University_of_chicago|University rector of Chicago]]. My "business card" website is [http://home.uchicago.edu/~jas/ here]. Other sites include:*[http://ocf.uchicago.edu Three Hierarchs OCF at The University of Chicago]*[http://www.midwestdiocesestjuvenaly.org Official website of the Diocese of the Midwest]*[http://orthodoxwebSt.org Juvenaly Orthodox Web Development CommunityMission]in Kailua-Kona, Hawai'i.
See also my Wikipedia User page: [[Wikipedia:User:Jschroe]].
My contributions to OrthodoxWiki can largely be described as "[[meta:Metapedianism|metapedian]]" - that is, I spend most of my time here worrying about the structure and community of OrthodoxWiki rather than writing articles. That's the way it is for now, maybe that will change someday! ==Ryokan #1031=={||''Sumizome no<br>''waga koromode no <br>''yuta naraba<br>''ukiyo no tami wo &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;<br>''owamashi mono wo'' |'''If these sleeves<br>'''of my black robe<br>'''were only wider<br>'''I’d shelter all the people<br>'''in this up-and-down world'''|} '''From''' ''Ryokan: Zen Monk Poet of Japan''''', trans.

*"Orthodoxy is summoned to witness. Now more than ever the Christian West stands before divergent prospects, a living question addressed also to the Orthodox world… The ‘old polemical theology’ has long ago lost its inner connection with any reality. Such theology was an academic discipline, and was always elaborated according to the same western ‘textbooks.’ A historiosophical exegesis of the western religious tragedy must become the new ‘polemical theology.’ But this tragedy must be reendured and relived, precisely as one’s own, and its potential catharsis must be demonstrated in the fullness of the experience of the Church and patristic tradition. In this newly sought Orthodox synthesis, the centuries-old experience of the Catholic West must be studied and diagnosed by Orthodox theology with greater care and sympathy than has been the case up to now… The Orthodox theologian must also offer his own testimony to this world — a testimony arising from the inner memory of the Church — and resolve the question with his historical findings." - [[Georges Florovsky#Quotes|Georges Florovsky]], ''Ways of Russian Theology'' II, pp. 302-304
