I'm a woman and an African American, which is pretty obvious already from my photo. What may not be so obvious is that I'm an ordained minister (African Methodist Episcopal), a bible scholar, and a writer. I've written several books which I won't bother listing here. (Google me.) I taught biblical students for 18 years in a seminary and  gender and religion for 2 years at a women's college.

Visit my blog where I mouth off a lot about religion and culture and gender and women's spirituality, and, oh yeah, God:  Something Within: For Thinking Women of Faith.

So, I started a blog. My blog is a place I can hear myself think and where I can rage and kick things around before heading to the pulpit. ...more
