Open to the Spirit: United Church of Canada Congregations Engaging their Twenty-First Century Context. DMin, San Francisco Theological School 2008  

The work discovers five common traits that reflected an openness to the Spirit moving in congregations to address their contexts with justice and love.  These five traits were analyzed and interpreted from a postcolonial feminist point of view providing both affirmations and challenges for these and other congregations as they try to faithfully embody the Spirit of Christ in this time.
