So come and put your heads together with the Revs. Jessica and Susan for the Glenn Women’s Brown Bag Book Club. You and your friends are invited to bring yourselves, Rachel Held Evans’ book, The Year of Biblical Womanhood, and your dinner—but save plenty of room for discussion about what being a woman of faith means.
