not sure what you mean.

btw, i added a link to my last post about how an orthodox priest who concelebrated with a catholic priest was dealt with.

I guess what I'm saying is that the Orthodox have multiple leaders (patriarchs).  We have one.  I would imagine that it would be easier for changes to happen when there are a lot of cooks in the kitchen.  Likewise, I would think that with one person keeping an eye on things, that major changes wouldn't happen.

Or maybe I don't have a clue what I'm talking about and hat is why I am not making sense....lol.

Yes, in the Orthodox Churches, we have a leader for each regional church but all the individual churches are in Communion with one another.  This is very important to the Orthodox mindset and belief.  If one Church were to start making some very radical changes that the other Churches find questionable or wrong, then the other Churches would break Communion with that one Church thus creating a schism.

Another thing to keep in mind is the fact that a Patriarch or Metropolitan does not have omniscient power.  He cannot make major changes without the support of the Holy Synod of Bishops for his jurisdiction.  And a Synod of Bishops is not afraid to depose a ruling Patriarch or Metropolitan if they believe he has overstepped his authority or caused scandal.

So it's similar to a checks and balances system.  Interesting.
