Rev. Dr. Guy Erwin was elected Bishop of the Southwest California Synod of the Evangelical Church in America on May 31st, 2013.


Recently the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America elected its first openly gay bishop to oversee churches in Southern California. The move followed the church's decision nearly four years ago to allow openly gay men and lesbians to serve as clergy.

We'll talk with Reverend Guy Erwin about his new role, and what it means to be the first openly gay bishop.
