    We’re not a “national” church, but an international one. 90% of our members and dioceses may be in the US, but we are also in 16 other nations. “Churchwide” is a much more helpful descriptor, but somebody out there may be able to come up with others!

    • Episcopal Prayers for Sharing says:

      Thank you for the correction. I will change “national” to “churchwide” in this post and the other previous posts. St. Tims and the Diocese of Missouri work with the Diocese of Lui in Southern Sudan, and I should have remembered that and other Episcopal Churches outside of the US.
      Thanks Again!
