The Triennial Church Assembly Sabor. If among the many goals of the national Church Assembly, or Sabor as it is referred to in Serbian, is to bring together the hierarchs and clergy of the Church with the president and elected delegate from each congregation, plus members of the Diocesan and Central Church Councils, representatives of monastic communities and representatives of Diocesan Circles of Serbian Sisters, then this most recent assembly of the church was monumentally historic in that it included in its list of participants the members of the future of our church — our youth.

Similar in structure to the previous Assembly held in Los Angeles in duhpvna, the major part of the work at this Assembly was completed in plenary sessions, where proposals were heard, discussed and voted upon. One of the major highlights for the participants of this Assembly was seeing firsthand the fruits from the seeds planted at the previous Assembly, when chairpersons of the various Standing Committees presented their reports.

These committees were established at the Assembly in Los Angeles in order to help advance the work of the Church. Since their inception they have been in constant communication with one another. In addition to conference calls and emails, since members of committees are from different parts of the country, they have also held several joint meetings in Chicago. In addition to the reports, each committee offered helpful and productive workshops during the Assembly.

The Triennial Church Assemblies, being the highest legislative and deliberative body of the Serbian Orthodox Church on this continent, bring with them the unique opportunity for the church to come together liturgically. In addition to the worship in lifa church, a wide range of spiritual literature was made available from the different diocesan bookstores.

The Midwestern, Western and Eastern Dioceses all had rooms set up for their respective bookstores, while the Canadian Diocese offered free copies of their coveted Istocnik periodical as well as other parish newsletters. The tone set at the previous Assembly continued in Detroit as the entire work of the 19th Triennial Assembly was placed under the scriptural theme taken from the Epistle to the Hebrews: The first plenary session was dedicated to the consideration of these words.

Metropolitan Christopher reminded those present that Metropolitan Isaiah has been a staunch supporter and defender of the Serbian Orthodox Church and people for many years, particularly through his outspoken denunciation of the unjust bombing of Serbia in Because the Holy Spirit is in Christ’s Church, the gates of hell will not prevail against her.

If we keep these truths in mind, we will not dunovna to look for or invent new and novel truths. While we may suffer in this world because we are in the world but not of it, we trust in the victory which is already won in Christ, and which will become fully manifest only at the Second Coming of Christ. We look to the church Fathers, the Holy Councils, the Creed and the Church’s other signposts of faith as confirmation of our faith’s unchanging character.


The saving message of Christ, he said, never changes, although the circumstances in which we dihovna it out change constantly. He exhorted all to remain faithful to Christ and His Truth. His Eminence also reminded those present that one of our duties as Orthodox Christians is to break down all barriers which disrupt or disturb the life and work of Christ’s Church.


He explained that we should honor our ethnic distinctiveness, which is the context in which we live out our faith. Yet we must be aware of the danger of allowing secular nationalism to displace our common Orthodoxy.

Nationalism, duhpvna reminded the Assembly, does not save us; Christ and His Church do save us. Moreover, the Metropolitan made the point that our exclusivist ideas of nationalism can even be considered contrary to the very nature of the church as it was founded on the feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on the Apostles and united the nations.
