ABOUT THE BOOK “On Holy Ground grew out of a wish to set the lived experience of women alongside—or within—the institutional history of women in leadership ministry among Mennonite Brethren, as recently written by Doug Heidebrecht. His excellent narrative of denominational meetings, motions and debates on the subject is invaluable, but it was real women who were under the spotlight during all that discussion and it’s the voice of real women who need to be on record as well with their recollections of this history. In this book we hear some of those voices, telling their compelling stories.”
