This week I realized that Sunday, October 24th will mark the 65th anniversary of women's ordination in my denomination, the Presbyterian Church USA. When I excitedly shared this news with some female clergy colleagues over text message, I quickly heard back a reminder from an African American colleague who reminded me that the 1st ordination of an African American woman happened in our denomination in 1974. I then learned the 1st Latina, Asian American, and Indigenous women were all ordained in the following 15 years Indigenous women were all ordained in the following 15 years. My colleague's prompt response was a quick reminder that these occasions hold different meaning depending on one's perspective.
This Sunday we will begin a new sermon series titled prospectives. For the next several weeks we will we will hear from a variety of theological perspectives. This will include guest preachers from our area. We are looking forward to spending time hearing from different theological perspectives and examining our own in the process.
This Sunday we will take a closer look at texts which point to women in the roles of prophesy and sharing the good news. We hope you will come and make church with us.
