    There are a small but growing number of evangelical Episcopalian
    priests. I have personally been in three churches served by
    evangelical priests and have known others. I am a member of one now.
    In some cases I have been disappointed that anglicanism didn't take
    more of the rough edges off the evangelicals. In my opinion, like the
    rest of evangelicalism, too many seem to covet neat black-white
    pictures more than truth.
