Orthodox consider the Bible to be the central part of "Tradition", but not the only part in contrast to Protestantism, which generally relies upon the Bible as the sole, ultimate doctrinal authority (sola scriptura).
The Orthodox believe she was assumed into heaven bodily; however, unlike in the Roman Catholic Church, it is not a dogmatic prescription and the holy day is usually referred to as the Feast of the Dormition, not that of the Assumption.
Orthodox confession can therefore take the form of a discussion between the confessor and the penitent concerning his or her sins and the best means of overcoming them.

 Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
After the Bolshevik Revolution threw the Russian Orthodox Church and its faithful abroad into chaos the Orthodox Arab faithful in North America, simultaneously shaken by the death of their beloved bishop St. Raphael, chose to come under the direct care of the Patriarchate of Antioch.
The Archdiocese had formerly been a member of the National Council of Churches (NCC), but its Archdiocesan Convention voted unanimously on July 28, 2005 to withdraw fully from that body, citing increased liberalization and a generally fruitless relationship, making it the first major Orthodox jurisdiction in the US to take such a step.

 The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America (AOA) Granted Autonomy   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
The Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America (AOA) has been granted autonomy by the Patriarchate of Antioch, according to a report by one of the AOA's bishops, Bishop Basil.
Now that the Antiochian Patriarchate has granted autonomy to the AOA, the GOA remains the last of the three largest Orthodox jurisdictions in the U.S. that will be primarily governed from abroad, and thus the last major impediment to a united American Orthodox Church.
So the sequence of events now unfolding--the Antiochian move, followed by the GOA Congress, and then the OCA Congress--holds out the promise of producing a fascinating summer of Orthodox news, as Orthodoxy in America continues its struggle to move from being an ethnically divided to a nationally united Church.

I was somewhat aghast when becoming Orthodox that only one translation had the 49 books of the Old Testament canon (RSV expanded edition) and that as a result many Orthodox did not have any awareness of many of the books absent from Protestant Old Testaments.
