The Bicentennial Woman

"[Woman] has such a ‘homey’ disposition. She does not read essays on justification, or the Trinity, or prophecy, but gets close to her class and makes chums of them…”

- Adaline Hohf Beery, “The Work of Women in the Church,” in Two Centuries of the Church of the Brethren: Bicentennial Addresses, Elgin, IL: Brethren Publishing House, 1908

As a Tricentennial Woman, I've done both.
