What Happens When A Woman Takes the Pulpit?

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

What was happening? To find out, she entered the lives of female ministers -- women of various ages and races in a range of churches -- and emerged with the first real portrait of what it's like to lead as a woman of faith today. What Sentilles found was that despite many churches' resistance -- conscious or not -- to re-imagining ministry for anyone but a man, many of these women are achieving remarkable transformations in their congregations. And now she's coming to share their stories with us!

To learn more about Sarah Sentilles, please visit:

Friday, November 7 @ 7:00PM
First Church, 11 Garden St., Cambridge
Co-Sponsored by the Women's Theological Center.
