Acquired March 2008* – from the donation bags from the Red Cross to BookCrossing

Picked this out of the donation bags but registered it straight away. This is a fascinating look at one woman’s ministry within the church BEFORE the ordination of women – so she becomes a deaconess then gradually moves towards full ordination as the rules allow her to. Honest, funny and heartfelt, while obviously a Christian book, she does not push the parallels on the reader, but merely makes observations. The epilogue is cheering, and all in all an interesting and warm read.

Any takers?

* argh – can’t get into the BC site at the moment!
