Moore gives thanks for our long partnership with Deaconess Margaret Rodgers
Many testify to her clear teaching ability and this was evident when she lectured in church history at Moore. Margaret also had a strong and positive influence over the university students who lived at Deaconess House.
She maintained a genuine interest in others and was always keen to help and train men and women. She encouraged women to engage the debates of the day by writing letters to the newspapers and she was a prominent active member of both the Sydney and General Synods.
“I last spoke to Margaret a couple of months ago when I invited her to speak at a conference. Although she was unable to be involved because of her precarious health, the conversation with her was remarkable. She encouraged me and her wonderful sense of humour left me in hysterical laughter at points. All who knew her, and especially those of us at Moore College, have very good reasons to thank God for the life of this faithful servant” said Moore College lecturer and Director of The Priscilla & Aquila Centre Jane Tooher.
