Video Recordings of Past Events

November 4, 2021 – Reading Women Writers, Reading Scripture 

Dr. Bettina Tate Pedersen’s talk addresses the ways that her reading and teaching of women writers and feminist literary theory have influenced the way she reads scripture herself and the way she listens to others interpret biblical passages.

 

October 7, 2021 – Laying Down the Sword in Everyday Dilemmas 

Phyllis Olins will walk through a radical, scripture-based approach to making conflict disappear. She will present the basic principles of her book, How NOT to be a Jerk (or a Victim): Transcend Your Ego in Everday Crises, through examples and practice.

 
May 6, 2021 – “Becoming Anti- Racist: Reflections from a White Christian on the Sin of Racism” with Dr. Emily Reimer-Barry

Dr. Emily Reimer-Barry  discusses the sin of racism from the perspective of a white Christian who needs to both “learn” and “unlearn” in the journey of becoming antiracist. She will discuss how Christianity remains complicit in racism in its construction of theology and God and some of its pastoral practices.

March 4, 2021 –“Gendered Journeys”: Women’s Experience of Migration” with Oliva Espin, PhD

Oliva Espin

 
Speaker Oliva M. Espin, PhD asks:
Is the experience of migration different for women and men? What is the impact of intersections of gender, race, class, ethnicity?
 
 
 
October 4, 2018 – Bishop Katharine Jefferts-Schiori: “Women and Leadership: MeToo > WeTogether”

Systemic sexism and harassment continue to emerge from the shadows of shame and social control.  Bishop Katharine examines ways in which women lead change, and spiritual practices that support that leadership.
