The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America put in its first brazenly transgender bishop in San Francisco Saturday.
The Rev. Megan Rohrer will lead roughly 200 congregations in Northern California and Nevada.
Rohrer, who makes use of the pronoun “they,” was elected to a six-year time period in Could after the earlier bishop retired.
Rohrer stated the brand new position reveals that “all that’s potential once we belief God to shepherd us ahead.”
Previous to being put in as bishop, Rohrer was a pastor on the Grace Lutheran Church in San Francisco. Additionally they labored as a chaplain coordinator for the San Francisco Police Division.
