Dr. Tiller’s Faith: The Work of the Faithful Will Endure

As a member of the clergy, I provide many hours of pastoral care to women and families in the congregations and communities where I minister. The clergy experience confirms that these women come to their decisions with a sense of responsibility for themselves, their families, their other children, and their goals in life.
