New program officer for Episcopal Indigenous ministries

Of note, albeit a little belatedly. From Saturday's Episcopal Life Daily:

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori has named Sarah Eagle Heart as program officer for Native American/Indigenous Ministries for the Episcopal Church...

Eagle Heart has been serving as a part time consultant to Native American Ministries since October 2008. She is now the administrator for Holy Cross Episcopal Church in Pensacola, Florida.

"As a Lakota and an Episcopalian, I try to lead by example," Eagle Heart stated in her application letter. "Communication is essential. My hope is … (that) I can encourage reconciliation, spiritual formation, and inspire our people into leadership for the future of absolute equality among genders, cultures and countries."
