Let’s hear it for Reverse Church Growth! :D
Sorry. I’m trying to put a positive spin on the Episcopal Diocese of Florida bleeding parishes.
But if that diocese ever goes bankrupt, perhaps holding Reverse Church Growth seminars would make an excellent second career for Bishop Howard. He clearly has a gift in that area.
Seriously, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: In the Episcopal Church USA, even in orthodox dioceses, you are only one bishop away from disaster.
The Diocese of Florida is Exhibit A.
