==About Me==
I am a [[priest]] in the [[Orthodox Church in America]] and a Ph.D. student at the [[Wikipedia:University_of_chicago|University of Chicago]]. My "business card" website is [http://home.uchicago.edu/~jas/ here].
Some of the other sites I'm responsible for include:
*[http://www.xcthesavior.org Christ the Savior Orthodox Church]
*[http://ocf.uchicago.edu Three Hierarchs OCF at The University of Chicago]
*[http://prolife.uchicago.edu The University of Chicago Pro-life Association]
*[http://midwestdiocese.org Diocese of the Midwest] of the Orthodox Church in America
*[http://orthodoxblogs.com Orthodoxblogs - Aggregation in Praxis]
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!

==A Few Quotes==
*"Repentance is the daughter of hope and the renunciation of despair." - [[Ladder of Divine Ascent|The Ladder]] 5:1
*"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
