So, according to this article, the OCA (Orthodox Church in America) has had a "precipitous" decline in its membership over the last twenty years. This is posted on their official website: https://oca.org/questions/oca/decline-in-oca-membership Also Sandro Magister, a noted Italian intellectual and historian, has written that this trend is broader and that the Orthodox churches are declining across the world, even in purported strongholds like Russia: http://magister.blogautore.espresso...rches-in-decline-except-in-ethiopia-a-survey/ Rod Dreher asked a pretty devastating question several years ago: why are so many Greek Orthodox leaving the church? http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/why-are-so-many-greek-orthodox-leaving-church/ What does everyone think? I'm curious to see what your experience has been, if you happen to know any Eastern Orthodox friends and whatnot. Maybe our resident @SirPalomides could shed some light on this issue as well?
