Readers Respond to Women in the Ministry

One reader thought many more female pastors could have been named.


Women of God

At first, I was very interested to read “Women of God” in the February issue. However, I was surprised and disappointed that your article mentioned nothing about certain female pastors who lead significant churches on the Main Line: Susan Ericsson, lead pastor at St. Luke Evangelical Lutheran Church in Devon; Rev. Carolyn Cavaness, the first woman pastor in the 120-year history of Bethel AME Church in Ardmore; or pastors Agnes Norfleet, Rebecca Kirkpatrick and Rachel Pedersen of Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church. 

In fact, it seems like the article’s author didn’t even try to research who the women pastors on the actual Main Line are. In overlooking them, or “underlooking” for them, you’ve done a disservice to your readers and totally undermined the veracity of your magazine’s content.
