Libby Lane


ELCA bishops welcome new bishop of Stockport, Church of England


12/19/2014 12:00:00 AM
​            CHICAGO (ELCA) – The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton, presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), and the Rev. Jessica Crist, bishop of the ELCA Montana Synod and chair of the ELCA Conference of Bishops, celebrate the appointment of the Rev. Libby Lane to serve as bishop of Stockport – the first woman bishop in the Church of England.
            In a Dec. 18, 2014, letter to Lane, Eaton and Crist wrote: "With great joy we welcome you, our sister in Christ, to the ministry of oversight. We celebrate your appointment with the Church of England and offer our prayers as you take up this new call.
            "Being 'the first' is a unique and sometimes complicated role. Layers of meaning are placed on even inconsequential actions. One becomes the example of an entire segment of humankind. Wear this lightly," the ELCA bishops wrote.
            "In baptism God's Spirit gave you the gifts that you need to serve in this call. You said yes to God's invitation to serve God's people when you were ordained a deacon and a priest. Now as you prepare to say yes to God's invitation to be a bishop in God's church be assured of our support," Eaton and Crist wrote.

ELCA Bishop Jessica Crist

and started the NALC in protest over the ELCA
policies he helped to shape.

Pastor Nathan Bickel -


When I came to this article, I quickly scrolled down with the thought in mind that these females could be self molested "transgenders," dissatisfied with Creator God's gender design. Then when I went back and started reading the script, I discovered that my initial thoughts were spot on - at least with one of them. No wonder much of Lutheran Christianity has gone downhill in our present culture!
