A Friend and Ally Elected to Executive Council

We're delighted that Katie Sherrod has been elected to the Executive Council. Katie has been a long-term advocate for LGBT inclusion who has worked tirelessly behind the scenes in many previous General Conventions, and in the LGBT witness at Lambeth 2008. She is also one of the filmmakers who brought us Voices of Witness Africa. We celebrate with her that this year she is here for the first time as a deputy from the continuing Diocese of Fort Worth, and we are delighted that she will be able to bring her many gifts to the whole church as a member of Executive Council.

We also give thanks for the leadership of those Executive Council members (both LGBT and straight) who are stepping down this year.
