Update on Stroud
Remember Rev. Beth Stroud?
Stroud said in an interview earlier this year that she realized she was a lesbian while attending Bryn Mawr College. After graduating from Union Theological Seminary in New York City, she was ordained and assigned in 1999 as associate pastor of Philadelphia's First United Methodist Church of Germantown, Pennsylvania.
When I went to hear Stroud talk, I thought she was one of the most dedicated people I've ever heard. She truly loved the church and wanted to be a part of it.
She was defrocked by the highest court in the United Methodist Church today.
