Is there a lesson here for us? Interesting how families and children seem to be declining in their church. Perhaps we need to dig deeper into what Episcopalians think about their church. One of the comments to this article is very interesting:
I think we're doing it mostly right. Though I don't believe all scripture must be taken absolutely literally, most of it has to be in order for the Church to be true. The LDS Church has even mentioned a few places where things can be figurative such as the rib story regarding Eve and what is meant by Eternal punishment.
I agree about the social club notion. It speaks to standing for something rather than trying to appease everyone. To appease me, the Church would have to establish a Sunday venue for discussion and debate about controversial topics. But the Church doesn;t really need to appease me. I believe with or without such a venue.
