    Episcopal Church Names First Woman Leader

    I think this is fantastic! My favorite quote of Katharine Jefferts Schori: "To be created in the image of God doesn't mean just one thing."

    WOW, I'm Episcopalian.........I never would have thought a woman would have been elected as presiding Bishop. I believe the term is for 3 years, then someone else will hold that position. She appears to be quite an accomplished woman.

    ...she is, BG...and an excellent role model...

    I'm sure others will have differing opinions, though...

    I am too, BG.

    I know next to nothing about her. Our female priest just resigned to pursue "a career in environmental work," after 13 years.
