That ad fits uncomfortably with these words of hers:

We’re not about being either left or right. We’re about being comprehensive.

All of it is so very too bad.

Tim Chesterton

Joe Walker has a good short reflection on this:


I spent a couple of years in an inner-city Episcopal church in Houston with a wonderful rector who really redeemed the liturgy for me from some previous dry, rote experiences.

It seems to me that
1) some simple math would show that the ECUSA's declining membership is really not about birth rates but about attrition
2) the theological liberalism present in northeast ECUSA leadership is not representative of ECUSA leaders nationally (Rick, am I correct?) or the membership (which explains the first point)

My pastor in Houston struggled with the ECUSA's direction and is no longer an Episcopal priest. Tough choice for him, but I respect him immensely.


The Episcopal Church USA does have many sound, decent, loving pastors and pew-sitters or at least did when I was active in the church...

I'm afraid that like your pastor in Houston, many have decided not so much to leave the ECUSA but that the ECUSA left them...

I can't believe that's a real ad, that the Episcopal Church would offer Depo Provera to Mormons or Catholics....this must be a fake.

And that comes from a Vermont Episcopalian who's, you know, supportive of a liberal view.
