Women past and present

As I read the amazing articles by Malinda Elizabeth Berry, Sarah Ann Bixler and Linda Gehman Peachey (March 24), I recalled an article I wrote for WMSC Voice in June 1974, “The Anabaptist Woman: Our Role Model.” There I shared stories of the faith of 16th-century Anabaptist women and stated, “We have a heritage in which women were free to serve Christ,” even as they faced death. I’m glad to see these present-day connections of woman­ist theology to Ana­baptism. The authors give important insights into the practice of a holistic faith that is true to the original Anabaptist message.
