Does anyone have any information about what happened to Father Daniel Byantoro of the Indonesian Orthodox Church, release from ROCOR?
It seems he has joined the Genuine Orthodox Christians of Greece.

Yes, he did start with the Greeks. I saw him years ago at a lecture and he was quite interesting. I do get concerned when I see priests shift from jurisdictions, especially if one keeps shifting to more conservative and often more exclusive churches. It rarely ends well. Having said that, it would be good if someone had some insights to his reasons to shift. The above noted article mentioned concerns over the politics between Constantinople and Moscow, but there as to be more to this.
