A Church of Her Own: What Happens When a Woman Takes the Pulpit

A Church of Her Own: What Happens When a Woman Takes the Pulpit

Thirty years after the first group of women was ordained by the Episcopal Church, women are among some of the most vital and successful ministers in all Protestant denominations, even as churches struggle to hold on to their members. Sarah Sentilles enters the lives of female ministers—women of various ages and races, in a range of churches—to paint the first real portrait of what it’s like to serve as a woman of faith today.

Sometimes triumphant, sometimes hilarious, sometimes painful, their stories take us from their calls to the pulpit through their ordinations and service in congregations. These women show us how the church can be more welcoming to the women who are its lifeblood. And in their inspiring determination to perform the ministry to which they are called, no matter what the obstacles, we might well see the future of the church itself.

A Church of Her Own: What Happens When a Woman Takes the Pulpit

Women have been among the most dynamic and successful ministers in all Protestant denominations; but in divinity school, Sarah Sentilles discovered that some of the best and brightest were having trouble and even leaving the church altogether.

Filled with humor, heartbreak, and triumph, the women’s stories take us from calls to the pulpit through ordinations and service. Despite many churches’ resistance — conscious or not — to re-imagining what it means to be a minister, many of these women are achieving remarkable transformations in their congregations. In their inspiring determination to perform the creative, life-giving work to which they are called, these women illuminate a way that the church can revitalize itself. What’s at stake is nothing less than the future of the church itself.

What happens when I join an Episcopal Church?

Answer by David
Don’t do it. The “episcopal” system teaches works for salvation, which leads to hell, because it rejects the truth of free salvation by believing in JESUS.

Go to a simple Bible church or Baptist church, a place that teaches the Bible. If you need a recommendation, put your zip code in this search engine for a good Bible teaching church: http://www.sbc.net/churchsearch/default.asp

Above all, you need to believe in JESUS for His free gift of salvation, to be saved! John 3:16! Then Jesus will save you! And Jesus will also give you a personal relationship with Him, satisfying your soul!

Jesus is God, and Jesus loves you so very much! 😀 And the Trinity is true!

The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to hell, is by believing in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died on the cross for all our sins as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe in Jesus for His free gift of salvation, and you will be in heaven, no matter what!

Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus to save you! It is impossible to lose or “leave” salvation (John 6:39-40, John 10:28, 1 John 5:13).

Please pray now: “Jesus, I believe that You died on the cross to pay for my sins and that You rose from the dead, and I thank You for eternal life!” You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die! 😀
