Janis Ian and Miriam Therese Winter: Two Jersey Broads – Who Knew???

MT Winter Janis WinterAt the tender age of fifteen, I was introduced to Miriam Terese Winter’s classic “Joy Is Like the Rain” when I nervously attended a “Christian Youth Group.” Later, MT Winter’s feminist resources for worship changed the way I approach worship-planning. Janis Ian’s classic “Seventeen” was released in my seventeenth year and captured my teenaged angst in ways that have taken me a lifetime to begin to understand. Since then, the music of these two women have floated in and out of my life in various revolutionary¬†ways. So, this conversation between two powerful women of spirit and song resonates in me. Enjoy!
