About the Book

"The three decades since the founding of MSUU (Ministerial Sisterhood Unitarian Universalist) have seen not only a remarkable increase in the percentage of women in professional ministry but an equally remarkable transformation of the nature of ministry itself. Reading these sermons affords an opportunity to see what's been on women's (and men's) minds and how these concerns have contributed to the changes!"-Rev. Dr. Marni Harmony, Minister, First Unitarian Church of Orlando, Florida, and Founding Member of MSUU

Glorious Women is a unique chronicle of women's changing lives and concerns, told through sixteen award-winning sermons. It is also the story of women in ministry and their rise from a tiny minority to over half of the Unitarian Universalist ministers in only twenty-five years.

The sermons in this collection speak to the central issues of our times, issues that concern both women and men. Often drawing on historical women's lives and words for inspiration, thirteen women and three men explore the challenges of living lives of integrity and faith in today's world. By sharing their insight and wisdom, these authors encourage all who share their words to live more authentic lives and do what they can to work for a more just world.
