A new way to stay connected

Oct 8, 2018

For 30 years, the WellSprings Journal has been a community for United Methodist clergywomen – a place to connect and exchange information and ideas, speak grace and compassion, and reclaim the essence of the Gospel as revealed in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Our members have found comfort and inspiration in the pages of the Journal, from the time it was distributed on paper through the online format we’ve enjoyed since 2010. Today, we’re excited to introduce a new way you can experience these powerful and uplifting stories.

The WellSprings Journal Podcast is available at Now we can hear the voices of our fellow clergywomen as they share updated versions of their messages that previously appeared online.

We’ve launched with the first three episodes from the 2018 season, which has the theme, Claim Who We Are in Christ. New episodes will be added weekly. Here’s what’s currently available:

  • What’s in a Name? – Jacqueline Rose Tucker (North Georgia Area of the United Methodist Church).
  • Reflections on Native Christian Identity and the Longing for Coming Home – Lisa A. Dellinger (Oklahoma Indian Missionary Area of the United Methodist Church.
  • Claiming My Identity, Walking My Truth – Bishop LaTrelle Easterling (Resident Bishop, Baltimore-Washington Area of the United Methodist Church)..

More and more people are discovering podcasts as a convenient way to get information and entertainment on-demand. You can listen on a computer or with a smartphone, in the car or on a treadmill in the gym – wherever and whenever you want!

At, you’ll also find time-stamped transcripts of each episode that are perfect for sharing, and there’s a place for comments and discussion. There are also links to iTunes, GooglePlay, Stitcher, and other sites where you can have each episode downloaded to your device.

We hope you’ll try this new way to stay in touch with other UMC clergywomen. In the meantime, we’ll continue to provide a print version each month at
