New Lead Blogger

Rachel Swan of Minneapolis has graciously volunteered to serve as the lead blogger for Walking With Integrity.  Rachel set up Integrity's Facebook fan page and Twitter presence just before General Convention and has been managing them every since.  Rachel was also the primary blogger for Integrity's General Convention team.  If you see something you think should be shared on Walking With Integrity, please email Rachel.

Prayers for the Diocese of Minnesota

The Diocese of Minnesota will be electing its next bishop on Saturday, October 31st.  For the first time since General Convention 2009 passed Resolution D025, a partnered LGBT candidate--the Rev. Bonnie Perry--is on the ballot.  Please keep all of the candidates and electors in your prayers.

Almighty God, giver of every good gift: Look graciously on your Church, and so guide the minds of those who shall choose a bishop for this Diocese that we may receive a faithful pastor, who will care for your people and equip us for our ministries; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
