General Convention 2006

Send out your light and your truth; let them lead me; let them bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Then I will go to the altar of God, and I will praise you . . . Psalm 43:3-4

TIME Magazine, July 3, 2006

From the MILESTONES column, p. 23:

ELECTED. Katharine Jefferts Schori, 52, theologically liberal Episcopal bishop of Nevada; as Presiding Bishop of the 2.3 million-member Episcopal Church of the U.S.A., becoming the first woman to lead a province of the global Anglican Communion; in Columbus, Ohio. Citing her support of the 2003 consecration of openly gay New Hampshire Bishop V. Gene Robinson, conservatives predicted she would further alienate the U.S. church--which 30 years ago made history by ordaining women--from Anglicanism's more traditional branches.
