Jurisdiction question
« on: July 01, 2011, 12:32:19 PM »
As I was reading a Christian News post about a change of church jurisdiction, the question came to me.

As all Orthodox churches regardless of nationality share similar beliefs, why would a church or parish jump from one jurisdiction to another? Why would it matter? Like the nunnery in DC going to the ROCOR from OCA, etc.

"I confidently affirm that whoever calls himself Universal Bishop is the precursor of Antichrist"
Gregory the Great

"Never, never, never let anyone tell you that, in order to be Orthodox, you must also be eastern." St. John Maximovitch, The Wonderworker
