Back Porch Book Study on Hear My Voice by Marcia R. Rudin | August 28th, 2023

We welcome anyone to join us on Monday, August 28th starting at 12 noon. We encourage you to read a most fascinating book entitled, Hear My Voice by Marcia R. Rudin. We have 6 copies of the book available for sale at $8 each at the Commission on Congregational Development (see Heather Stevenson: [email protected]). It is out of print and can be a challenge to locate physical copies, but not impossible. It is also available on Kindle.

The story is set between 1940 and 1990. The book follows the story of three women who feel called to the religious life as a nun, a minister, and a rabbi. The story follows the civil rights struggles of that time and how the women experience complicated personal and religious journeys. It is a work of fiction but follows the timeline of what took place over 50 years. Learn more about the author by reading her bio here.

You have all summer to read. You are welcome to bring your lunch and we will have some cold drinks. Join friends of the Commission on Congregational Development and the Unity Women’s Desk for a robust conversation led by Beth Hayes. Mark your calendars today and grab a good summer read! See you on the back porch!
