"Our churches need to be aware of the diversity in which we live," Harrison said.
Harrison's reaction to her status as the first female bishop in Texas included thoughts toward a shared ministry and church.
"It certainly affirms the ministries of all women, and the value the church places upon our contributions to the common life of the church," she said.
While there may be some in the diocese who don't agree with Harrison's election, the large majority support her, according to the Rt.
