Way cool!

The St. Paul area synod has formally approved Anita Hill for rostering in the church! This has been a long time coming, and is only one of the many good fruits from the decisions made at the churchwide assembly last summer. PrettyGoodLutherans has a great set of additional links with background, but I think my favorite is still the documentary film, This Obedience. The film traces the path Anita and her congregation took in ordaining her outside of the ELCA rules at the time.
