Rev. Gafney: I recently stumbled upon and then purchased your Womanist Midrash for my wife (who, as it happens, is a Jew). We both love your work!!! but the font in the paperback is too small for her (she has glaucoma and is age 70). I will buy the book again, in ebook format, so that I can read it aloud to her–but it’s really not a quick read, and she’d dearly love a hard copy she can underline, margin-note, cross-ref, etc. Any possible way that we could somehow obtain a digital copy from you, so that I can print it out on 8/5×11? I know: this is a very odd and perhaps unprecedented request. (Certainly I’ve never asked such a thing of anyone, before) but will you think about it, please? Of course, we will both sign whatever you might need us to, to protect your intellectual property rights. In either case, we both thank you (thank you, thank you) for your excellent and most liberating work.
I want to stay connected with other black women leaders in the Episcopal church. I’m a Theological Studies PhD student and hope to one day complete the discernment process for the holy orders. It’s been a wonderful journey this far.
