According to Ad Orientem: Women priests leaving the Episcopal Church? Alice Linsley is doing a survey of women clergy who are leaving the Episcopal Church in the USA.
Alice Linsley herself was one who left to join the Orthodox Church, and knows of others who have done so, but would like to find out more. If anyone has information about this, please pass it on.
The main aim of this blog is to interpret the Christian Order in the light of current affairs, philosophy, literature and the arts -- and vice versa. So it's about ideas. Social, political and religious comment. Links, notes on people, places, events, books, movies etc. And mainly a place where I can post half-baked ideas in the hope that other people, or the passing of time, will help me to bake them.

It would be interesting to know why they leave.
If it's over the whole gay issue, I would be saddened, as it is a very important issue, and I admire Bishop John Spong and Archbishop Desmond Tutu for speaking out on it, not to mention all those LGBT people who remain faithful to the message of Jesus in spite of the Church's rejection of them.
I have heard no more about how many have left or why.
