Sarah Bessey

Recording Date: October 24, 2019
Recording Location: The Meeting House, Oakville, Ontario

Sarah Bessey spoke about two very important issues in this cultural moment. In her first session, she discussed her book, Jesus Feminist, and the need for us to call for justice for women, both in the church and in our society. In her second session, she helped us learn how to pastor well the people who are deconstructing their faith and wrestling through doubts.

Sarah is the author of the best-selling and critically acclaimed books Jesus Feminist and Out of Sorts: Making Peace with an Evolving Faith.  She is a frequent podcaster guest appearing on LEAD Stories, The Bible for Normal People, RELEVANT, Sorta Awesome, The Road Back to You, and many others.  

Sarah also serves as chair of the board for Heartline Ministries in Haiti. Based in Port au Prince, Heartline is committed to empowering Haitian families through complete maternal and infant health care, education, vocational training, and economic development.

A former award-winning blogger, Sarah has also contributed to the NIV Bible for Women: Fresh Insights for Thriving in Today’s World; Mother Letters: Sharing the Laughter, Joy, Struggles, and Hope; Soul Bare: Stories of Redemption; and What a Woman is Worth.

Born and raised in western Canada, she makes her home in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada.
