Why That Color?

You may have noticed that the backdrop of our site has been changing periodically. This is not because we are simply bored, or even just in a flurry of redecorating. We have been changing the background of this site to reflect the liturgical colors of the Christian Year. Not all churches do this, I know, but many do and we thought it would be fun to do on this site as well. If you have ever noticed the seasonal changes in Creation well, then you know that God likes to redecorate from time to time–and so do we here at WWSIC!

The green is up for Ordinary Time, hope you like it. It will be here for a while.



For God is not a God of confusion but of peace. As in all the churches of the saints, let the women keep silent. For it is not permitted for them to speak, but to be in subjection, just as the law says. But if they wish to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home. For it is shameful for women to speak in church.

—1 Corinthians 14:33-35

It isn’t accidental this site has the name it has. Sooner or later, women who speak in church (in particular) have to contend with the infamous few lines in Corinthians that seem to give people with smaller hearts and minds all they need to make a roadblock to the lives we feel called to.

This is about women in professional ministry. It isn’t about your grandma’s Church Women’s Auxiliary group. That is SO last century.

So here we are, filled with the spirit and in joyful defiance. Women Who Speak In Church. Welcome!
