Being a whistleblower is a difficult calling. It takes courage and a willingness to tell the truth when powerful systems would rather keep things under wraps. That's especially true in the church world, where whistleblowers and victims are often silenced. Rev. Beth Caulfield has written a new book outlining her experience in the United Methodist appointment system, exposing some of the problems in the system around appointments and the treatment of women in ministry. The book is titled People Throw Rocks at Things That Shine: A Clergy Whistleblower's Journey. Beth formerly served in the Greater New Jersey annual conference of the United Methodist Church, but is now an ordained elder in the Global Methodist Church and President of the Greater New Jersey Chapter of the WCA.
