Lady Father on Life

  Broadcast in Lifestyle

Call in to speak with the host

Our broadcast after the Newtown CT tragedy.

Join the Lady Father every Saturday afternoon at 3:00 pm for discussions on "life" and readings from the Rev. Susan Bowman's memoir, "Lady Father." This is her story - chronicling her perilous journey through the ordination process in the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia in the 1980's, when women were not encouraged to apply, nor were they welcome. Her Bishop, the Rt. Rev. C Charles Vache' was an adamanant opponent to women's ordination and he told Susan that he could not ordain her, but in an unprecedented "about-face," he not only signed her application to seminary but helped to support her throughout seminary.

His complete "turn-around" is history in SoVa and his part in Susan's story is legendary in the Episcopal Church. You can hear Susan's stories about her "hero" and other excerpts from "Lady Father" on her weekly show. The book is available on her website - books purchased directly from her site will be autographed by the Lady Father.
