The first Evangelical minister whom I ever met, once asked me to
preach in St Peter's Church Hobart. It was part of a very novel decision
to involve laymen and so the minister thought that for a six weeks' trial
period he would have lay people delivering the sermons. I knew nothing
about Evangelicalism and I was to be the first of the six speakers.
I and two of my colleagues had just had a long, tiresome but
victorious struggle for equal pay for women teachers, so I chose as my
text Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the
evidence of things not seen," and my sermon was to be about a better
and more equal deal for women in the church. The novel decision was
cancelled immediately and I learned quite an amount about
Evangicalism, especially that it is not given to a woman to be the bringer
of good tidings. In cases where it does happen, it is customary to shoot
the messenger.
I wish to thank the late Reverend Herbert Condon, Archdeacon Lou
Daniels, Dr Richard Ely and Joanne Webb for their considerable help
and interest in this project.
