11. There is a group called "A Call to Action" that
works to make changes within the church.

Me? I have always been in congregations with liberal priests including one who would admit in small groups to being pro-choice. But when he left and another beloved, free-thinking priest became ill and left our parish, it went downhill fast.

I've attended the Episcopal Church a few times and believe that my husband and I will eventually become members of one of the many Episcopal Churches in our area.

Good luck with whatever you do. I admire people who can stay. The last straw for me was when I went to the Atlanta Diocese website and read the sermon the Bishop gave on right-to-life Sunday - he pretty much said there's no excuse for an abortion, not even when the mother will die as a result of a pregnancy or childbirth.
