characters Æ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Andrea Raynor Andrea Raynor ☆ 0 Read Read Incognito Filled with humor insight and faith this true story tells how one woman overcame challenges stereotypes and personal struggles at Harvard Divinity School and emerged an ordained ministerAs a bright young girl from Ohio Andrea Raynor always wanted to be a doctor Instead she landed almost by accident at Harvard Divinity School which she uickly discovered was no typical semi­nary When she attended in the 1980s HDS was a place overflowing with creative expression and freedom of thought. Andrea Raynor went to Harvard Divinity School in the early 1980s and her record of her spiritual path during those three years makes for compelling reading It s pretty awesome to read of a minister who was pretty sure in her youth that she didn t want to follow that spiritual path as she couldn t reconcile her idea of what a minister should be with her own fun loving boy crazy personality But as she grew in her understanding of what her faith meant and could do she also came to embrace her calling as well as figure out her love life even if it meant that she wasn t the traditional stodgy model of rectitude that most ministers seem to be It was also really lovely to read of her relationship with her faith as well as to spend time with her sunny personality She really reminded me of several previous co workers whose positivity faith based or otherwise always made interacting with them a pleasureWhat really fascinated me about this book though was the snapshot it gave of faith in the early 1980s Perhaps Ms Raynor was on the progressive forefront but it doesn t really read that way Instead she talks of embracing her homosexual brethren as if it was something she believed was a given As someone who spent a good part of her youth in a repressively religious society I marvel at and respect the ease with which she uietly challenged mainstream thought I suppose being in a place as open to all cultures and credos as Harvard Divinity School helped a lot I envy her courage and greatly admire her work with the homeless and agedAnyway a great read for people especially women wondering if a life of religious ministry is for them as well as for anyone interested in an anecdotal portrayal of faith in the early 1980sETA Despite the title being listed here as Confessions of a Girl Priest How a Girl From Ohio landed at Harvard Divinity School and Came Out Ordained the book I read had the title Incognito Lost And Found At Harvard Divinity SchoolI received this book gratis as part of ELLE Magazine s ELLE s Lettres Jurors Prize program

I received the book Incognito Lost and Found at Harvard Divinity School by Andrea Raynor as a give away Thank youI thoroughly enjoyed reading Andrea s journey through Divinity School and her path to figure out what she wanted to do with her life I particularly enjoyed how honest she was when it came to her doubts and uestions about faith After all if a divinity school student and future minister has such uestions it must be ok for me to have uestions also But even through all of her uestioning she never lost her faith or her knowing that God was with her all the way I applaud her boldness in standing up for what she believed in even though some of these ideals were not the popular or accepted ones in the 1980 s It was an easy read which made Andrea seem very approachable and very realI would recommend this book highly
