"Alternative oversight" Dioceses vital

This chart, from the Diocese of Forth Worth website, compares the growth and vitality of those Episcopal dioceses seeking alternative oversight to the ECUSA at large. No surprises here: Alternative oversight dioceses are much healthier in terms of growth and those with liberal bishops are least healthy. Now I understand and sympathize with those who say "numerical growth is not the only means of determining church health." But really, if the church is continuously shrinking and shrivelling it is hard to make the case that it is perfectly healthy, faithful, and under the blessing of Almighty God.
