Rowdy Broads of the Hebrew Bible Presentation

Kansas City, Kan., September 23, 2013 – The ongoing lecture/conversation series titled FaithLife Connections (FLC), will return to Community Christian Church (4601 Main. Street, 64112) in Kansas City, Mo., on Saturday, November 9, 2013.

Created by Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa, Okla., and featuring the seminary’s faculty, FaithLife Connections is designed to help laypeople develop the tools to connect faith with daily life.  The third presenter in the Kansas City area will be Dr. Lisa Davison, Johnnie Eargle Cadieux Professor of Hebrew Bible at PTS. Her discussion topic will be “Rowdy Broads of the Hebrew Bible: Keepers of the Covenant.”

“This presentation will look at women in the Hebrew Bible who were agents of God for insuring that the covenant God made with the People of Israel survived for future generations.  Sometimes the methods by which they accomplished God’s desires were questionable, but they got the job done.  From a sampling of their stories, we will discover what lessons these often pushy, wise, & risqué women can teach us about faith in the 21st century,” said Davison.

Davison will give a presentation, following the presentation attendees are encouraged to share perspectives and engage in conversations. After lunch together, more time for discussion will be available, including recommendations on materials and resources. Anyone, of any religious tradition or of no tradition, who seeks to make connections between faith matters and daily life, is welcome to attend.

“Persons seeking to follow the way of Jesus in today’s world face profound challenges. At PTS, we believe that faculty and students – including both laity and clergy – should seek to understand the challenges, to relate resources from Christian traditions to develop creative, hopeful individual and communal strategies for ways in which Christians could respond to those issues. PTS has developed FLC to reach out to people of faith who seek similar ends,” said John Imbler, Coordinator of FLC.

Designed to run for three and a half years, seminary faculty with topics of expertise and interest, will rotate to participating congregations so seven different topics will be discussed over the course of the program.  FLC will be hosted by seven congregations in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) covenant regions, those include: Denver, Colo.; Columbia, Mo.; Wichita, Kan.; Kansas City, Mo.; Fayetteville, Ark.; Edmond, Okla.; and Tulsa, Okla.  Within the three and a half year span, a congregation will host a weekend event twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
