On Thursday afternoon, Bishop Maxim and I headed down to Volos for the four-day International Theological Conference entitled "
Bishop Maxim was asked to serve as the moderator for one of the sessions on Friday -- the session, in fact, in which Metropolitan John Zizioulas first arrived. In the photo above, you can see the Metropolitan with Metropolitan Ignatios on the left, and Bishop Maxim on the dais on the right.
One of the highlights of the conference was Metropolitan John's talk on Saturday morning.
Bishop Maxim with Metropolitan John, Pantelis Kalaitzidis (the director of the Volos Academy), Fr. John Behr of St. Vladimir's, and others at lunch on Saturday. Here, they were all asking Metropolitan John to recount stories about his experiences with Fr. Florovsky (he was a student of Florovsky at Harvard).
Above and below, more photos from Metropolitan Ignatios' house.
