Rev. Charmaine Penn Johnson was privileged to attend the Antoinette Brown Trailblazer Awards event during General Synod in Baltimore, where two outstanding ministers who have provided the United Church of Christ with their vision, hope and leadership during their lives and ministries were honored.
The Rev. Da Vita “Day” McCallister and The Rev. Lois “Loey” Powell received the award — a recognition of their work in highlighting the pastoral leadership that women provide — during a reception and ceremony award on July 3 in the Baltimore Convention Center.
