September 20 &27
Tracing the Image of God: Embodiment, Gender, and our God-Talk / Rev. Kenneth A. Pettigrew
Sept. 20: What’s the Big Deal with Bodies?
We will explore our barriers to full-person embodiment, particularly the cultural constructs of gender and sexuality in light of our body theology, spirituality, and the words we use to express all of it. Curious? Rev. Pettigrew encourages attendees to read this excerpt from his paper, Blessed and Broken, before Sept. 20: www.tinyurl.com/KBCWed0920
Sept. 27: What’s the Big Deal with Pronouns?
We will take a practical look at the meaning and use
of pronouns in our everyday lives. We will also examine what the use of pronouns says about our understanding of God and its impact on discussions of gender, sexuality, and our ability to trace the image of God in one another.
Interested? Rev. Pettigrew encourages attendees to read
this chapter from Trans-Forming Proclamation by Liam M. Hooper before Sept. 27: tinyurl.com/KBCWed0927
