Awkward Christian Soldiers

How a Bay Area sect with an occult tinge went national, transformed itself into an odd brotherhood -- and now is gaining acceptance from the ultratraditional Orthodox Church

The Orthodox Church in America still makes a distinction between distaste for the Brotherhood's leadership and willingness to accept its members. Bishop Tikhon says he hopes that Podmoshensky "will be able to come to repenting" to the canonical Orthodox Church from whence he came. Tikhon feels such an action could bring Podmoshensky's followers away from the Brotherhood as well.

"I would hope that all of the clergy and people of that Christ the Saviour Brotherhood would then be able to follow the correct path into the Orthodox Church," he says. "Moreover, I would hope that this [path] would be the Orthodox Church in America."
