Then there was Paul
Verghese, PTS Class of 1954, known more formally as Paulos Mar Gregorios.
He was principal of the Orthodox Theological Seminary in Kottyam, Kerala,
India; the metropolitan of Delhi of the Indian Orthodox Church; and
president of the World Council of Churches (WCC). I met him at the Thai
Red Cross Center in 1968 during an East Asian Christian Conference
assembly near Bangkok (where later that year Thomas Merton died in an
accident) and really got to know him at the WCC “Salvation Today?”
conference in 1972.
