A New Orthodox Marketplace Website is Coming!

The Orthodox Marketplace online web store and the Department of Religious Education's catalog store are in the process of merging operations.

While we are working out the details of this transition, the Orthodox Marketplace website will suspend sales functionality of the site. Customers will be able to browse the catalog, log in and check on the status of outstanding orders and order history (including downloads).

However, the cart and checkout features will be disabled.

If you wish to purchase items in the interim, a subset of our product catalog is still available from our Amazon Storefront.

You may also wish to purchase items from the Department of Religious Education Resource Guide, available below. The DRE can be reached via their toll-free number: 1-800-566-1088.

We expect the new Orthodox Marketplace and Resource Center website to launch in 2016.

The Mississippi Symposium was the eighth on a sea or river dedicated to seeking solutions to both local and global environmental problems. The Mississippi River plays a key role in the American economy. With the arrival of the Europeans, the forces of Man and the forces of Nature collided. Man's goal has been economic growth and prosperity for some by shackling the river with dams to produce electricity and irrigation, levees to protect from flooding and strait channels to facilitate navigation. With each new imposition on the river for Man's benefit, Nature has fought back. So the price was paid later: in wetland loss, hurricane damage, ecosystem collapse, flooding, pollution, dead zones in the Gulf, toxic spills and human health.

Aside from dealing with the evident ecological problems, the symposium participants, scientists, religious leaders, activists, politicians and the media discussed questions of global importance: Should coastal areas be abandoned or defended? Can religion help save the planet? Is global capitalism compatible with a habitable planet? What were the lessons from Katrina, which devastated New Orleans and the Gulf area?
