  1. This is a great list – I’m honored to be included!

    • Sorry this took so long — I didn’t get a notification about your comment (odd). I adore your book. I read the story of your phone call aloud to the class I spoke to recently — it was great to point out that even those in accepting denominations will likely receive criticism and backlash from those outside their own congregations.

  2. Since you’re exploring Anabaptism (Oh, hi! It’s me!)…

    …let me tell ya that yes, women are allowed to be ministers in Mennonite churches these days (although there are enough complementarians around to make us a little crazy).

    My mother was a conference minister in her conference until her death in 2007. So… for me… this is a GOOD thing to see another woman aiming for ministry. Good on ye!
