A Mainline Tidbit
From Kendall Harmon's Blog:
In 1994, when the Episcopal Church had 2.5 million members and 7,413 churches, we had 14,645 clergy, 170 members per cleric.
(As of the most current figures) In 2005, we now have 2.2 million members and 7,155 churches, and we have 17,817 clergy, or 122 members per cleric.
That struck my as interesting.
