WomanPrayer, WomanSong
Resources for Ritual

Meyer Stone/Crossroad, 1987. paperback. 254 pages. $19.95.

Eighteen rituals with 24 songs that celebrate
creation, liberation, transformation
from a woman's perspective.

Contemporary scholars and liturgists say this about this collection:

"With Miriam Therese Winterís WomanPrayer, WomanSong,
the feminist movement in the Christian community goes beyond
the critique of patriarchal bias in religion and begins a new phase.
Through a new religious encounter with the Mother-spirit of God,
a new religious culture begins to develop
that also renews the liberating grace and power of biblical faith.
For the first time the church prays and sings the ancient story
of creation and redemption
through womenís creative imagination."
Rosemary Radford Ruether

"By drawing on tradition to challenge tradition,
this book models how a feminist hermeneutic can revitalize tradition.
The preface, liturgies, and songs reveal a sophisticated theological mind
blessed with the gift of poetic expression."
Thomas Troegger

I believe in a God
who holds us all
in Her everlasting arms,
who gathers us protectively
to the shelter of Her wings,
who binds our wounds,
dries our tears
and promises better things.
