In this episode, Rachel leads Sarah, Erin, and Bri — together with special guest Kaye Wolff — in a recap discussion of the latest Lutheran Ladies’ Book Club selection: Rosa Young’s autobiography Light in the Dark Belt.
What were Dr. Rosa J. Young and her Jim Crow South world really like? How did she understand the connection between education, faith formation, and church planting? What has happened since her death to the churches and schools she founded and the Lutheran teachers and pastors who were raised up in them? Most importantly: how can Lutheran women today continue to honor Rosa Young’s legacy, carry on her mission, and share the Gospel in all times, places, and cultural contexts?
At the end of the discussion, the Ladies announce their plans for the next book club pick — an anniversary celebration of Lutheran Ladies’ Lounge authors.
