Women and Worship Conference
Finding Our Voices, Expressing Our Visions
A Pre-conference to Re-Mind & Re-New
January 13-14, 2015
Save the date! Re-Mind & Re-New is coming January 14-15, 2015.
The gifts and perspectives of women, both laity and clergy, contribute to church renewal through models of fully shared leadership, integration of the arts, creative and just use of language, engagement in hospitality, and care for the world and its people. During these two days we will collaborate in expressing our visions and finding our voices through worship, conversation, creative activities and song.
The Women and Worship Conference will be led by Rev. Dr. Ruth Duck, Professor of Worship at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary in Evanston, Ill.; Rev. Colleen Kwong, Minister of the Arts at Christ Church UCC in Milwaukee; and Dr. Rebecca Ferguson, a teacher and writer in Milwaukee. Additional speakers include Dr. Lisa Davison, Dr. Ellen Blue and Phil Morice Brubaker.
The conference will have both plenary and small group sessions in addition to an afternoon reflection and evening gathering. The conference will also feature the following workshops:
- Feminine Images of God in the Bible
- Male Allies for Gender Justice
- Women and Seminary
- Congregational Emancipatory Language Policies
- Intersections with Racial Justice
- Inclusive and Just Language
The cost of registration is $35 per person or $25 for students. Registration includes both lunch and dinner. Childcare is available if reserved no later than January 2, 2015.
