The echoing voice of Rev. Vashti McKenzie reverberated through the regular Tuesday chapel service for Truett Seminary students at the Paul Powell Chapel.
McKenzie is the first woman to hold the position of bishop in the African Methodist Episcopal Church. Her initial election to the 18th Episcopal District in 2000, which McKenzie called "breaking the stained glass barrier," was the culmination of a long history of women pastors in the church. McKenzie has since been elected to preside over the 13th Episcopal District and she currently serves as the bishop of the 10th district of the church, which consists of the entire state of Texas.
WACO, Texas (Aug. 28, 2012) -- Hypocrisy among Christians isn't what bothers most of the unchurched, but rather "bloody denominational struggles and church fighting in-house'' -- a marked contrast to Jesus' "undogmatic openness," said David Garland, Ph.D., dean of Baylor University's George W.
