This weekend, a diocese based in Fresno, Calif., could become the first in the nation to formally sever its ties with the Episcopal Church. The Diocese of San Joaquin says the Episcopal Church has abandoned the Christian faith by ordaining female and gay clergy, and by supporting same-sex unions, and that recent efforts by the national church to reach out to conservatives are not enough.

Sasha Khokha reports from member station KQED.
