Sobornost (Собо́рность) is a term coined by the Russian Church, meaning “Spiritual community of many jointly living people.” The term has been used to underline the need for cooperation between people at the expense of individualism on the basis to grow and thrive in Christ.
We chose this name because it has been known to capture the very essence of Christian praxis, that our worship extends into community, as we so plainly see in Scripture. Community continues to dissolve in the west to the likes of consumerism and general hedonism. We may be at a turning point with our new economical crisis, and so we believe that this is a perfect opportunity to express and promote the bond of unity that has carried us through some of the most difficult times in the history of the Church: The Traditional Orthodox Worldview!
