WEARER of the IRON ROBE
This Journey of Which I Speak, Preach, and Walk With God.
by Reverend Lainie Dowell
Welcome to the Supernatural Realm Life!
A tiny look into the personal account of life as a Christian Reverend and Clergywoman in a black Baptist Church before it was "popular." From the woman who - in the mid 1980s - dared to affirm her call to Preach as "Reverend," and not "Sister." She also put together the two words to advocate "Clergywomen" used as one word on the order of the heretofore use of "Clergyman," which had been publicly applied to both men (and women, on occasion).
In the mid-1990s, she founded the first internet Ministerial Advocacy to this day known as, "The Firebrands Christian Clergywomen Support Network/Resources, to specifically call for women clergy to affirm their call of God on their lives to Preach and for Church leadership.
Whereas it was very hard to work to overcome the rejection by so many churchgoers, including female and male clergy at the time, now it is more widely accepted. But, after all, it remains true that "hindsight is 20/20." However, believe me, this account is the mildest of all that she had to go through. This is also a testimony of how God guided her and has kept her faith intact to this day. How do we know? Because she is still here to report on "This Journey of Which I Speak, Preach, and Walk With God, as Wearer of the Iron Robe." Join me. God bless you!
