The Church of Pascal's Wager suspects it's going to lose the bet:
The Anglican Church of Canada is inviting corporate sponsorship of its national convention this year, selling space for brand logos on delegate documents, advertising signs in its meeting spaces and a private lunch for executives with the church’s senior archbishop.


By most indices the Anglican Church is struggling – declining faster than any other Christian denomination in Canada, according to a recent report from its Diocese of British Columbia, closing decades-old parishes for want of money and “moved to the far margins of public life.”


Mr. Carrière [the Anglicans’ national director of communications and information resources] said that, ideally, the church is looking for commercial sponsorships from firms with which it does business, such as insurance companies.
