God Speaks, Women Respond: UCC Women in Ministry Tell Their Stories
edited by Nancy Peeler Keppel and Jeanette Stokes (United Church Press, 2004) $15.00
God Speaks, Women Respond is a collection of essays by women in ministry in the United Church of Christ. The richness and diversity of voices offer a rare and useful glimpse into the complexities of composing meaningful lives of service in the face of sometimes overwhelming obstacles.
The essays will encourage women who are already active in the church. Clergy, whether UCC or not, will find here a commonality of experience. Anyone considering a career in lay or ordained ministry can read these stories to better understand the processes and possibilities of living in response to God's call. Congregational leaders can learn more about how church dynamics appear from the other side. Anyone seeking inspiration for the life of faith can draw strength from the journeys of these women.
The collection includes a foreword by Yvonne Delk and essays by Robin Townsley-Arcus, Dora Atlas, Kaye Crawford, Jill Edens, Mary Evans, Sallye Hardy, Lynne Hinton, Nancy Peeler Keppel, Denise Cumbee Long, Ann McLaughlin, Maria Palmer, Julie Peeples, Cally Rogers-Witte, and Diane Snowa.
