Shaking it up

This week in reading Jarena Lee and Rosa Young and other religious was an exciting changed from the male based readings we were reading before. At  this time no one really allowed women to take the pulpit due to them just being women but yet Richard Allen allowed Jarena Lee too which is a huge step. One quote that stuck out to me was “For as unseemly as it may appear nowadays for a woman to preach, it should be remembered that nothing is impossible with God (Sernett, 173).”While still these women were taking some big steps forward it was kind of hard to read some of the more negative parts of their narratives, especially Jarena talking about her suicide attempt. It seemed though even though all these women were struggling, they still kept moving on and deeply rooted in their faith.
