Jefferts Schori wasn't shy in discussing the church's history in America.
"There are a whole lot of evil tales wrapped up in the history of this place, and a whole lot of good ones," she said. "The rub is telling the difference."
She specifically addressed the church's complicity in the slave trade and the subjugation of American Indians.
"That has not yet fully redeemed itself," she said. "The work is not yet over."
"In the next century, God will call on us all in humility to redeem the evil deeds of the past."
