Gifts From God

Aired 1999-00. A look at the contributions and influence of women in Christian and Jewish ministry, this program, taped in St. Louis, visited a variety of dynamic women in ministry, including Roman Catholic nuns who have assumed pastoral duties formerly performed by priests. Their stories, triumphs, and frustrations were told, and seminarians examined some of the problems that remain. Included in the program: Rev. Dr. Peggy Way, Eden Theological Seminary (UCC), Rev. Brenda Hayes, Olive Chapel (AME); Rabbi Susan Talve, Central Reformed Congregation; Sister Mary Lou Stubbs DC, Catholic Charities; Sister Janet Crane SSND, chaplain Barnes-Jewish Hospital; Laura Renault, UCC seminarian; Sarah Peters, Southern Baptist seminarian.
