Presiding Bishop says "same sex union ceremonies" in our lifetime

The Dallas Voice reports:
Speaking at the predominantly gay parish that was the site of her first official visit to Dallas, the leader of the Episcopal Church said Monday, April 28 that she expects the denomination to sanction same-sex union ceremonies “in our lifetimes.”

Katharine Jefferts Schori, presiding bishop of the U.S. branch of the 80-million-member worldwide Anglican Communion, also said she believes openly gay bishop Gene Robinson’s exclusion from the upcoming Lambeth Conference will only serve to increase his impact on the event.

I was honored to have the opportunity to speak with her Grace at this blessed event. I appreciated her honesty and forthright answers given to those who questioned particulars at the event. I was saddened that Bishop Stanton was not present at this event despite his feelings toward the Presiding Bishop. As the PB reminded us, we should still pray for those who do not share our views in the church. We still need to value one another and allow each person to hold his/her opinion even when we disagree with them. This adds to the true diversity of the church. May God continue to shine on the ministry of Katharine Jefferts Schori.
