For those of you who missed this, the Rev. Bavi Edna Rivera was elected Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Olympia (my home state, wrong side of the hill). From the sounds of it, she brings alot of experience to the position and will hopefully be a great asset to that diocese.

So, why the irony? She's the daughter of the Rt. Rev. Victor Manuel Rivera, former bishop of the Diocese of San Joaquin, one of three dioceses in ECUSA that does not recognize the ordination of women. I have to ask the same question as Jake, will he participate in her consecration?
