23623451A/userimages/connectingcommunity/icons/2017-%20spring/Pittman_Nancy_newBadge.jpgDean Pittman's Sabbatical Message
Dear friends,
 
Many of you may already know that I will be going on a three-month sabbatical this semester—from January 30 to April 24.  This means that I won’t be on campus when the 13-week classes begin on Tuesday, January 31.  This will be a time for me to refresh my own study and writing skills as I work on a long-planned and delayed book project.  I will also take the opportunity to work on some issues related to our understanding of ensemble teaching and learning.  I will miss you!  Dr. Joe Bessler, who is now returning from sabbatical, will serve as Acting Dean during this time period.  Please know that he will keep his door and his heart open to you and that you can call upon him, as you would me, with any question or concern that arises during this time.
 
Praying that you all have a semester in which you learn much and grow in wisdom and faith,
 
Nancy Claire Pittman
Vice President of Academic Affairs and Dean and
Stephen J. England Associate Professor of the Practice of Ministry

"Talk to your professor, before it gets bad."

 

All parties are better off when dealing with any coursework issues early. Your professor can talk you through misunderstandings or generally advise you more clearly when you are not far off track. And you will be less frantic, because a confusing situation has not yet turned tragic or frightening. Remember, everyone at the Seminary, especially your professors want you to succeed in all of your classes. So do yourself a favor, if you have concerns talk to your professors!

Faithfully Feminist: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim Feminists on Why We Stay

 

By Gina Messina-Dysert, Jennifer Zobair, and Amy Levin

 

“Why do you stay?” It is a common question women are asked in relation to their faith. These are not women who buy into Candace Cameron’s biblically submissive theory; rather, these are women who claim a feminist identity, have membership in a particular religious tradition, and practice their faith in spite of gendered challenges.

 

In Faithfully Feminist 15 Christian, 15 Jewish, and 15 Muslim women share their stories of struggle and faith.

 

In a world where women’s issues are political issues, women are judged for their positions in relation to their claimed identities. Feminists argue that you cannot be a “true” feminist if you are a practicing Christian, Muslim, or Jew. Likewise, religious practitioners claim that you cannot be a “true” Christian, Muslim, or Jew if you support feminist values. Nevertheless, women who practice these religious traditions and hold feminist values are not uncommon, and the question “Why do you stay?” is one that is frequently asked of them.

 

Faithfully Feminist is the sharing of stories, encouraging other women, and acknowledging that being feminist doesn’t mean giving up on your faith.

Synopsis from White Cloud Press. Access it from the Phillips Library here.

 

 

 

 

As always, the library can still renew items and place items on hold for patrons via phone or email. We will let everyone know when access is back up. Please contact us if you have any questions and thank you for your patients.
