Presiding Bishop-Elect Rev. Elizabeth Eaton was interviewed on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” program today. The interview was part of Morning Joe’s regular “Faith On Fridays” series.
“Women have been in leadership in religion since the beginning of the Christian movement… It just wasn’t this public and noticeable. I’m looking forward to the day when ‘The First Woman Anything’ is no longer a news story; but having said that, I’m deeply grateful for this opportunity to serve in this way. And I really do hope to be a voice for the Good News of the Gospel.”
