Anne Robertson

Though she was called to preach at the age of 14, the Rev. Anne Robertson wrestled with the idea of women in the ministry and did not enter the Candler School of Theology at Emory University until she was 33 years old. In June of 2000, she received the Wilbur C. Ziegler Award for Excellence in Preaching from the New England Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church. In 2001, she was accepted into the Pastor-Theologian Program, sponsored by the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton New Jersey. Her work in this ecumenical program designed to encourage church renewal through theological reflection led to the development of her book Blowing the Lid off the God-Box, published by Morehouse in the spring of 2005.
