Blessing of the stoles for 50-40-10 Honorees

In 2019 and 2020 we celebrate 50 years of Lutheran women being ordained in the United States, 40 years of women of color being ordained, and 10 years of LGBTQIA+ individuals being able to serve freely. A group of Lutheran sewers have banded together to make stoles honoring our active clergy for whom this joyous anniversary applies. The majority of stoles were made by Janet Bruss (71) and Kathy Wiseman (25). All active women and LGBTQIA+ clergy can expect a stole in the mail in the next week or two. Our bishop came by Temple, Havertown to bless the stoles and those who will wear them. Thank you to those who worked hard to make this happen, and thank you to our 50/40/10 clergy for their boldness and bravery.
