Two bishops on list

Two ELCA bishops received mention in Top 10 newsmaker stories from the Religion News Service. In his commentary, A. James Rudin listed Elizabeth A. Eaton No. 7 on his list, with the headline “Cracks in the stained-glass ceiling,” as the first woman elected ELCA presiding bishop. In a similar story for RNS, editor Kevin Eckstrom called gay marriage victories the third headline-maker of 2013. The ELCA, he wrote, “elected its first openly gay bishop (R. Guy Erwin, Southwest California Synod) with barely a shrug.”
