Like many people, the Rev. Meg Shoeman needed time to find the right road, the right path for her life.

Meg, who earned her M.Div. from Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in 2007, candidly confessed that hers has been a “very long journey.” She left the ordination process after graduation and chose another career path because of the constitutional prohibition of gay and lesbian ordination.

“After graduation, I started working at an animal shelter,” she said. “I remember walking down the steps of the shelter one day and having this fleeting thought that church is a thing of my past. It was crushing.”
