Stump to lead deaconesses

The ELCA Deaconess Community elected Sister Janet Stump to serve a four-year term as its directing deaconess. Stump sees the call "as an opportunity to serve the church as a whole, to help the Deaconess Community deepen its communal spirituality, grow in its effectiveness to do justice and make peace in the world, and joyfully continue to engage its mission of proclaiming the gospel and serving all people in love, following the example of Jesus."
