The Book of Womens Sermons: Hearing God in Each Others Voices by Lee Hancock

Americans have gone back to God; but not the God of our parents and grandparents. There are new paradigms emerging in our churches, temples, and meetinghouses. And the voices of religion today are, increasingly, the voices of women. Having traditionally been marginalized by the church, women, perhaps not surprisingly, have been among the first to stand up and challenge their congregations and communities to stretch religion across the realities of modern life, to preach about a God who belongs to everyone.From Kathleen Norris to Lauren Artress, Alice Walker to Jean Shinoda Bolen, women of different races, creeds, and walks of life boldly and candidly discuss their spiritual communities rife with racism, child abuse, AIDS, poverty, homophobia, and neglect of the aging. They speak passionately from their perspective as women on power, liberation theology, the Mother God, and the role of women in the church. They reflect poignantly from their own experiences of marriage, motherhood, loss, and forgiveness.From the hearts, minds, and souls of these women emerges a unique, interfaith vision of the sacred. They turn their eyes to the question of what we will do with the gifts and graces that women bring to religious institutions, to its ministry and mission in the world. And they lift their voices together to enable women of all faiths to recognize the importance of addressing God directly, collectively, and out loud so that we can hear ourselves in one another.
