For the Life of the World: Towards a Social Ethos of the Orthodox Church is a powerful social document enriched by scriptural, patristic, theological, and spiritual references, to navigate through these often perplexing and difficult times, as Orthodox Christians, in a post-modern world. This document was composed by a special commission of Orthodox scholars appointed by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and blessed for publication by the Holy and Sacred Synod of the Ecumenical Patriarchate. It is a continuation of the work of the historic Great and Holy Council of Crete in 2016.
