Paging Syed Soharwardy

Oh brother... have I got a deal for you...

"The DTT Report recommends the disestablishment (closure) of 18 churches in the Diocese, the move of 13 of them to another nearby church to build a congregation large enough to carry out the church’s mission with enough funding from its members to support it."

"The thirteen church buildings vacated will be made available for sale or lease."
It's true... when one door closes... another one opens.

RELATED: Yup... just delaying the inevitable
"A report prepared for the national House of Bishops in 2005 warned that the Anglican Church in Canada is losing about 13,000 members a year and will face extinction by the middle of the century."

The Catholic, Anglican and United churches have strayed sooo far away from the teachings of Christ and dipping their fingers in ass protecting cover-ups, politics and this new eco religion. It is little wonder they are leaking at such an alarming rate. On the other hand Evangelical churches who are biblical based are expanding like crazy, a new one being built almost everywhere you go.

The Anglican Church is losing members, but the faith is not dying. Many parishes have simply split off, and choose to worship and practice the Communion the traditional way. When the Anglican Church of Canada decided to support gay marriages, ordain gay and lesbian priests, and allow women as vicars, many of the faithful had had enough. They mourned the gradual slide of society in general into equivalency and degradation, and then saw the same begin to happen to their beloved Church.

Shame on the Bishops and the Clergy for turning their backs on the faith
