Summary The impact of St. Mark and rsquo;s Community Center and United Methodist Church on the city of New Orleans is immense. Their stories are dramatic reflections of the times. But these stories are more than mere reflections because St. Mark and rsquo;s changed the picture, leading the way into different understandings of what urban diversity could and should mean. This book looks at the contributions of St. Mark and rsquo;s, in particular the important role played by women (especially deaconesses) as the church confronted social issues through the rise of the social gospel movement and into the modern.
