The Weight of Mercy by Deb Richardson-Moore is a book from the UMW Reading List and can be found on the UMW bookcase across the hall from the library. The author, Deb Richardson-Moore, entered the ministry after 27 years as a reporter for the Greenville News in Greenville, SC. When a friend announced her resignation as pastor of Trinue Mercy Center, originally a Methodist church, but then a non-denominational church and center to help those on the margins of society in a needy neighborhood of Greenville, SC, Richardson-Moore applied and was hired for the position. She is open and honest about her own struggles as a first time pastor in this personal memoir as her vision of serving those on the fringes of society meets her expectations vs the reality of their lives. In doing so she invites the reader into a world rarely glimpsed from the outside.
