The main thing I came away with from George Gapen’s article is that the (Orthodox) Church is a real thing, it’s not a philosophical association like all the other religious / philosophical associations and societies out there. It’s the Body of Christ, and as he (Gapen) said, it can’t be re-concocted out of “ingredients.” To extend the analogy, it’s a mixture in its final state; it can’t be ‘unmixed’ successfully.
