The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has installed their first openly transgender bishop, the Associated Press reported.
The church elected Rev. Megan Rohrer to serve a six-year term as bishop in May, replacing a bishop who retired.
Rohrer, who uses the pronoun “they,” will lead one of the church’s 65 synods, overseeing 200 congregations in the California and Nevada regions, according to the AP.
“I step into this role because a diverse community of Lutherans in Northern California and Nevada prayerfully and thoughtfully voted to do a historic thing,” Rohrer said in a statement. “My installation will celebrate all that is possible when we trust God to shepherd us forward.” (Read more from “First Openly Transgender Bishop Installed in Evangelical Lutheran Church” HERE)
