Lawrence, I didn’t mean to claim any superlatives for Truro and Falls Church. Whole dioceses leaving are certainly significant events. In symbolism, the loss of these two parishes is quite a blow for the ECUSA. The parishes date to the 18th century, and many of our Founding Fathers attended services there. Heck, the city of Falls Church was named after Falls Church. So if any parish should have historical pride, and those emotional ties to the Episcopal Church, those two are prime candidates. And they also considered this decision after great soul searching. Which is to say, the word among Episcopal communities ‘round here was that this was the event to look out for. We will see what the consequences are.
