Yes to Diversity

by Rev. John Zeigler 05-09-2014

Back in 1964 when I entered Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Austin, Texas, one of my professors was Rachel Henderlite, the first woman ordained in the then-Southern Presbyterian Church. We Presbyterians still have a way to go in the ongoing work of inclusiveness, but I cannot begin to imagine how much poorer we would be without the God-gifted leadership of women at all levels. Whenever we have said yes to God’s offer of diversity, we have received blessing upon blessing.
