JAROSLAV PELIKAN: A Fellow Traveler

By now, most of you are aware of the passing of Church historian, and Orthodox Convert, Jaroslav Pelikan. A parishioner had forwarded me his obit; I did not post it at the time as I’d already read about Dr Pelikan’s passing here, there, and yon. That said, THIS is a worthy read.

The Rev. John H. Erickson, dean of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, in Westchester County, said … that Dr. Pelikan had “likened his path to Orthodoxy to that of a pilot who kept circling the airport, looking for a way to land.”

May his memory be eternal!
