Orthodox Theology Defined

“Therefore, theology transcends all formulation and definition, being identified rather with personal encounter and a loving relationship with God in the communion of prayer. In such a union, the desire always remains insatiable and unending: it is the love of the bride in the Song of Songs, who forever stretches out her hands toward the one that cannot be grasped, who ever reaches for the one that cannot be attained.”

His All Holiness Bartholomew, Ecumenical Patriarch
In his book: Encountering the Mystery pg. 53
