The Episcopal Church will go out of business in 26 years
Sayonara. Guess there’s no American market for mainline Protestantism with some of the trappings of the Catholic Church. In my town they closed three years ago after a century here. The future: the ordinariate or the Antiochian Orthodox Western Rite for those who want that. Healey Willan’s daughter (her dad wrote a staple of old Episcopal church music) has formally entrusted his legacy to a group in ... the Catholic Church. If you’re Protestant there are the nice folks in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod for example (but I like them because they’re half-Catholic).

When your church’s reason to exist was to give the king of England an annulment he didn’t deserve, it never had a future.
