Book – Midwives of an Unnamed Future (Acta Publications, 2006)


“Midwives of an Unnamed Future” (Acta Publications, 2006) is a treasure for women who are passionate about exploring their role in shaping the “unnamed future.” Subtitle is Spirituality for Women in Times of Unprecedented Change.

Using the image of the midwife, spiritual directors Mary Ruth Broz and Barbara Flynn have developed a series of reflections and rituals that can be used by individuals or groups of women. The authors look to such traditional feminine activities as baking bread, spinning cloth, and quilting for spiritual enlightenment; and they connect spirituality with wellness, pilgrimage, aging, and reverence for the Earth.

Sixteen chapters in Midwives of an Unnamed Future operate as mini‐retreats to explore different aspects of women's spirituality. Each chapter includes suggestions for creating an environment helpful to contemplation, a reflection on the particular theme, questions to connect the topic with lived experience, and closing readings or songs.
