Will Minnesota Anglicans get a gay bishop?
News out of Chicago implies there is strong possibility the Episcopal Church of Minnesota could get a lesbian bishop. The announcement comes after the Anglicans lifted a ban on the ordination of gay bishops. And it's a sign that at least one major church body is getting past the haters of old.
Rev. Bonnie Perry, rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in the Ravenswood neighborhood, announced the nomination to parishioners in a statement on Sunday. A certified kayak instructor, she is out of the country on a long-planned kayaking trip and unavailable for comment."As we all continue to discern God's call, I pray that we will bear witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ that changes people's lives and proclaims the profound inclusivity and hospitality of God," she wrote.
