The Rev. Tracey Lind, dean of Trinity Cathedral in Cleveland, has accepted a nomination to become the next bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago because she wants to follow God’s call.

”I believe that accepting this nomination is what God is asking of me, and I, in turn, ask your prayers for me and for our church as I strive to respond faithfully and with grace,” Lind wrote in a letter to the Trinity congregation.

Trinity is the cathedral of the Episcopal Diocese of Ohio, which consists of more than 24,000 Episcopalians in 103 parishes in northern Ohio.

Admit it. You knew it was coming dit’n ya?

Here’s the whole story.

The Rev. Lane Hensley, a priest in the Chicago Diocese and a member of the search committee, said … ”We’re simply looking for the best person who is most likely called by God to be our bishop. It’s not about sexuality. It’s about God’s call.”

Meanwhile …

Next month, Episcopal bishops will meet with Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams in New Orleans to discuss demands that they pledge to withhold consent for another openly gay bishop until the global communion reaches consensus on the issue. If the bishops don’t comply by Sept. 30, then international leaders have predicted the relationship with the 77 million member church will remain “damaged at best.”
