Ethiopian Orthodox Tehadeso Church

According to its followers, the Ethiopian Orthodox Tehadeso Church (Amharic: የኢትዮጵያ ኦርቶዶክስ ተሃድሶ ቤተክርስትያን?) (distinct from the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church) stands to preserve the country's orthodox traditions, while believing in the full Gospel of the scripture. Most of its members reside in the Oromia Region of Ethiopia. However, it has several members (migrants) globally. Since most of its members were former traditional Orthodox, some believe this reformed form of Orthodox will mend relationships between Orthodox Christians and P'ent'ay Christians in Ethiopia.

Famous quotes containing the words ethiopian, orthodox and/or church:

    The Ethiopian cannot change his skin nor the leopard his spots.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    If the jests that you crack have an orthodox smack,
    You may get a bland smile from these sages;
    But should it, by chance, be imported from France,
    Half-a-crown is stopped out of your wages!
    Sir William Schwenck Gilbert (1836–1911)

    The Church disowned, the tower overthrown, the bells upturned, what have we to do
    But stand with empty hands and palms turned upwards
    In an age which advances progressively backwards?
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
