How does God call us? The answers are as different as we are. Sometimes God summons us through the Church and sometimes in spite of the Church.

In the depths of loss and confusion God speaks to us, beckoning us to follow an unexplored path.

While we are heading in one direction, God surprises us with an undeniable invitation to go another way.

Wide Open Spaces includes essays by women who have experienced and responded to God's call in all of these ways.

The ministers and Christian educators whose stories fill this book testify to God's grace in the midst of their lives as single people in family-centered contexts, as women whose callings also include parenthood and marriage, and as those who the Church refuses to fully accept.

Discrimination, harassment and homophobia pierce the narratives in this book.

Yet this is not a book about defeat.
