I noticed this part:

uses a uniform translation in the English language among all dioceses;


I know we are not at that point yet.  But a uniform English translation would be nice.

I think that's a pretty good vision for the church, and encouraging that this is coming from today's youth.

Why bother with a uniform translation as long as the translations are good?

I have to agree. Of any desires I would have as someone who fits the bill of Orthodox youth in the US, seeing "Creator of Heaven and Earth" instead of "Maker of Heaven and Earth" is the least of my concerns.

B-b-but it trips me up when the Lord's Prayer is slightly different!  Then I am ashamed and I don't know what to believe anymore.
