I had hoped that I would get to hear Nora Gallagher last year at the WomanKind conference that I went to She was supposed to be the keynote speaker Unfortunately she was sick and we got Anne Lamott instead I love Anne but she had spoken two years before I did take the opportunity to buy Gallagher's bookA year later I finally sat down to read it Timing is everything I wonder about the ordination process occasionally but I believe my role in the church is as laity Gallagher's story was fitting for my concerns This is the story of her discernment She wants parts of the priesthood however she is worried about the changes that come about with ordinationGallagher is an excellent writer In this she shares parts of her life that I would have found difficult to share I felt like I was involved in her discernment process She left me with lots to think about for which I am gratefulI recommend this book to those who are in the discernment process; to people interested in church and those who may want to know about the episcopal church
