It's obvious that the Episcopal Church is in numerical decline, and some estimates are that there could be no one in worship by 2050. Fred Vergara, Missioner for Asiamerica Ministries, thinks differently. He envisions a "re-peopling" of the denomination, primarily with people of color, who more fully reflect the changing demographics of the U.S. It sounds like a Pentecost moment.
But, for this future to emerge, there are important decisions the church should make now... most importantly, a willingness to follow the Holy Spirit and accept that the Episcopal Church of the future will look very different than it does now.
