You are currently on the steering committee for the Mennonite Church USA Women in Leadership Project. Why did you choose to serve on this committee? Why is it important for the Mennonite church to examine women in leadership?
I learned recently that promoting a missional identity and presence in our community involves accepting vulnerability in cultivating relationships with people in the community. I wonder, “Are we, in Christ’s name, still willing to ‘enter into’ another’s challenges with a heart of compassion and a view toward discipleship” when it is neither comfortable nor convenient for us?
