Can anyone inform me about what happened with OCA and Metropolitan Jonah?
I belong to the Church of Greece, (the autocephalous Church in communion with the Ecumenical Patriarchate), so I am not so well informed on what’s going on in Orthodoxy in America. I’m searching about it in Greek Orthodox ecclesiastical sites and blogs but I still haven’t found enough articles.
Could you please share with me some links, or explain what happened? Is it true that Metropolitan Jonah is leaving? He’s such an inspirational personality that has offered a lot in OCA. Has he announced the reasons why he’s leaving?
