Palm Beach Post-Times, Saturday, January 1, 1977-A7 First Authorized Woman Priest's Ordination Today compromise between their conflicting religions. That was the springboard for her ministry, and now she is thinking about becoming a bishop. "That'd be kind of neat," she said. "I think the House of Bishops, like the priesthood, could benefit from a woman's viewpoint on things ... so maybe someday I'll be a bishop someplace. Don't laugh. People laughed five years ago when I said I wanted to be a priest." Mrs. Means is an easy-going, good-humored woman who can be shockingly frank. She once answered the telephone by saying, "Hi, this is God" and jokingly warned an employe at the Indiana Women's Prison, where she is a chaplain, "You're talking to God's favorite lady now." religion, so they stopped going to church alogether.

She jokingly calls herself "God's favorite lady" and wears a T-shirt with "Mother Means" emblazoned on the back. Mrs. Means has been the target of some opposition from men within the church and a busload of demon- strators is expected at the ordination ceremony at All Saints' Episcopal church. Two women members of the All Saints vestry at the church resigned in protest to her ordination. Becoming a priest was hardly a lifetime goal for Jackie Means, a 40-year-old mother of four who started attending church again only for her children's sake. She doesn't even consider herself a religious person at least not in the traditional sense. "What's a religious person?" she asks rhetorically. "I don't think anybody else knows. But I had a strong FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH FLORIDA AT HIBISCUS West Palm Beach John M. Fletcher - Ministers - David J. Knapp 9:00 1 11:00 A.M. "OFF TO A GOOD STAR?' 7:00 P.M.
