Such the chess-set "Unity of Purposes of the Christians." is created at
the first time in the world. The idea of the composition is the idea of
unification of peoples whose religion Christianity is, as an example for
all the peoples of the world.This is not a chess-set for games, but a
souvenir..At the present moment we are looking for any organisations
(funds, firms), businessmen, etc., which would be able to give us help
in fixing up a symbolic chess competition between the heads of the Ortho-
dox and Catholic churches. It would not matter who won and who lost in
that competition the general ultimate result would be profitable for
all the people of the world.
If the heads of the two great branches of Christianity met in Jerusalem
or other neutral city and made couple or more of symbolic turns with pie-
ces of the chess-composition ("Unity of Purposes of the Christians.") it
would be not a game but a step, though a little one, towards the dialogue.
However, meanwhile it is impossible because of recent contradictions.But
there is one more variant.The chess-composition("Unity of Purposes of the
Christians.")has to be situated on some neutral territory(the best of all
are Jerusalem or Bethlehem for there come worshipers (their assistants )
from both churches. During the television broadcasting the Patriarch and
the Pope make several moves and their assistants move the pieces of the
chess-composition ("Unity of Purposes of the Christians.") in the pauses
between the turns the Pope and the Patriarch can address to the watchers
answer to their questions. The heads of the churches can situate in any
geographical point of our planet. During the year 2000 they can return to
the interrupted game in order to continue it. That return can become an
additional reason for discussion.
Probably, realization of namely this project will make priests
of different churches find a basic for agreement between them.That would
be interesting not only for believers for combined within the project
will be the Great Christian religion, the ancient game, the art, the
power of the word, and the achievements of mind - satellites, TV, etc.
I realize that the task is far more than a hard one. But the first and
the least step is already made - the chess-composition ("Unity of Purposes
of the Christians.") is created. This theme was conceived for more than
some 13 years.The most difficult step is to disseminate the information
about the project among the great variety of people of the planet,
including the heads of the churches. Probably someone will have ideas
and know-how's concerning that. Please inform us about them.
In case if you are interested in participating the present project,
you may disseminate the information about it.
It is obvious that being born
in the family of carpenter, from the very moment of His birth felt the
scent of wood-shavings and wood-sawdust. He was the witness to Joseph created
beauty of wood. Therefore, we think that our work is the closest to Jesus
as a carpenter.
