Sister Thea Bowman
Sister Thea, Sister Marylyn Hopwell, Sister Terisita Weind, Sister Lucy Williams; beautiful black sisters I was privileged to work with a quarter of a century ago!
I am still blessed to be working in a church abundantly blessed by lay and religious women of every hue, spirituality, holiness and talent.
Sister Thea’s spirituality and holiness shone forth for me in her ability to keep using her many talents even while being crucified by suffering. The cross and risen life existed simultaneously in her. She dances and sings before the Trinity now and continues to dance, and sing before us... and challenge us.
Lord, please continue to send us precious gifts like these women.
