Bonnie Perry Nominated for Bishop of California | The Bay Area Reporter Online

An openly gay man and lesbian woman are among the five candidates vying to become California’s eighth Episcopal bishop. The church announced the list of potential candidates on Monday, February 20.

Both Chicago’s Bonnie Perry and Seattle’s Robert V. Taylor are talented financial administrators with strong experience in congregational renewal and mission outreach. They preside over vibrant, growing churches and both earned their Masters of Divinity Degrees from New York’s progressive Union Theological Seminary. Each is in a long-term partnership.

Congratulations, Bonnie! Like the Oscars, it’s an honor to be nominated.

If elected, it will be California’s gain and Chicago’s loss, because Bonnie is a dynamic priest who’s done a lot of work for congregational development (somnething with which Holy Innocents is very much concerned).

Best of luck to Bonnie and to all the other nominees. Our prayers will be with you all.
