Martha Gotwals
Can't stay long, but gotta say, as well as graduating from the college at Drew in 1969 (and also being part of anti-war protests way back when), I had a brief freelance job with United Methodist Women after the United Church of Christ, where I was on the national staff, moved to Cleveland. While I sometimes have arguments with the UMC, I treasured my time at Drew and what I learned. And it's made me really happy to reconnect with my alma mater. Finally, as an active member of Judson Memorial Church (in Greenwich Village) and a long-time member of Judson's ordination committee, I just have to say how lucky we've been in the folks who have been part of our community minister program.

Uh, just gotta claarify, I was originally Schwenkfelder (5 churches in PA), and mostly UCC now though I have some fond Methodist memories.
