The history of the Church is not something closed and complete, nor is Christianity an exhausted creed which has run its course; indeed, many believers are just beginning to discover the inwardness that is implicit in the Gospels. Here, Bishop Seraphim Sigrist explores the Russian understanding of the term Sobornost, a word for "community" first introduced in the 19th century, which has taken shape as a key concept for exploring what community means and how unity between human beings is truly possible. Inspired by such figures as Bonhoeffer, Merton, and Weil as well as the Desert Fathers, Sigrist also includes short meditations on eclectic spiritual themes.
