In 2011 I wrote a book titled LET MY HANDMAID SPEAK, which is a history of women in ministry in the IPHC from 1901 - 2011. Even though I have tried to promote the book, women in the denomination have shown very little interest in purchasing it. I believe to read about the struggles many of the women faced in the early days of our denomination would encourage our lady ministers today.
Thank you for being an advocate for us.
[Editor's Comment: The article that the Rev. Ms. Jeraldine Posey was written by J. Lee Grady. My mother, Julia Payne Morgan was a missionary to China, 1920-1929, and a preacher. She was highly intelligent, a fiery preacher, and a motivator. I know other women who could preach.
I think of ladies like Katie Campbell, Juanita Williams, Greta Campbell, Betty Baxter, and Faye Penland, to name a few.
One bright star that is rising is Callie Sorrow, a graduate of Emmanuel College. She preached for us at Christian Life Worship Service a few months ago. She is dynamic and has excellent content, and she preaches with a passion for souls. Keep your eye on Callie Sorrow.
