Common worship? Yes, because a broken church cannot repair a broken world. Common worship is evidence of our engagement with Christ’s prayer “that we may be one.” Anderson says, “To say that Christian liturgy is a place and set of practices through which we come to inhabit the habit of Christ means that how and what we worship says something about the character of the church’s life in the world.”

The year 2006 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the historic decision in 1956 to accord full clergy rights to women clergy in The Methodist Church. Courageous Past-Bold Future chronicles this historic journey of passion, struggle, courage, and hope. In a moving early chapter, Thompson recounts the stories of the 27 women from 19 annual conferences who were received on probation at the 1956 General Conference, as well as three women elders from The Methodist Protestant Church still serving that year.

Eminent United Methodist historian Russell Richey skillfully analyzes the evolving marginalization of "extension ministers"—United Methodist clergypersons serving the denomination in ministry settings beyond the local parish. Drawing on denominational history, theological argument, and practical experience, Richey offers trenchant insights for reintegrating this vital ministry into the United Methodist connectional covenant today.
