I was curious if there has been any "fallout" from GC77 at the local parish level for any of us Episcopalians? Sometimes, it takes a little while for "word" to get around about the happenings of the national church. I've noticed several strange things going on at our parish. First of all, over the past year or so, our parish has grown by about 15% (Sunday attendance was way up as well, we are small parish though), we have seen a boom and it is mostly young to fairly young families. That said, in the months after GC77, i've noticed that monthly attendance has slowly decreased to the point of being lower than any point since i've been a parishioner here. One of the new families I haven't seen for over a month and haven't heard mention of them and some of the life long parish members have been strangely absent as well. That said, these months are traditionally a bit "slower" for our parish than other times of the year. Further, I heard that one of the families (one that has been a member of the parish their whole lives) sent a letter of resignation to the parish. They didn't come much on Sunday, but were very involved in other Church organizations. Personally, I was shocked to see them go and nobody is saying much. Also, i've heard whispering of "financial concerns" being made by some parishioners. Is all of this just some kind of coincidence or does it run deeper than that? I don't have the answer, but it doesn't look very good. So, what has been the "fallout" at your parish, if any?
