Re-imagining Redemption: A Feminist perspective
Fri 10 AM | Convo Hall 2
Sat 4 PM | Convo Hall 2
Rev. Adele Henderson
As the #MeToo movement started picking up steam John Piper decided to speak a word to women that redemption would come from an earthly Boaz just as it did for Ruth. As a Divinity school graduate who has study scripture and continues to study the Bible as a minister I want to offer an alternative and more accurate view of redemption. This view will help to bring healing for women part of the #MeToo and #ChurchToo movement. Participants will have an opportunity to write and read their own poetry of redemption. The session will then close with communion and a blessing.
