Episcopal Church Break up

The Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America during the Civil War 1861-1865, stayed unified despite diverse views on slavery and preserving the union. The Presbyterian and Methodist churches broke into northern and southern separate churches. In the mid twentieth century both denominations became united again in The Presbyterian Church USA and the United Methodist Church.

Parishes and dioceses separate from the Episcopal Church and give allegiance to other authorities because of their belief that homosexuality is alien to the word of God.

As their clergy and lay people age and younger people come into power, there will also be a unification of the Episcopal Church. We have much to learn from the experience of the Presbyterians and Methodists.
