Wounds and Words: Body, Race and Being, 9/17
Monday, September 17, 2018
Our bodies are us. Race, sex and gender, sexuality, and culture make each human individual, particular, different. Our bodies make us visible to some and invisible to others. Our bodies make us insiders and outsiders, citizens and immigrants, privileged and profiled, straight and queer. Beginning with our bodies, the Hedgerow Seminar aims to translate wounds into theological reflection and suffering into the compassionate practice of solidarity.
Course at Wisdom Ways
Reading and reflecting with womanist theologian M. Shawn Copeland, we will ask how we can become the raced, gendered, sexed, enculturated body of Christ in our world that Jesus was in his. Alongside Copeland’s work, we will read feminist theologians Rebecca Parker and Rita Nakashima Brock.
The course will include a variety of guest instructors that will guide our reading and reflections.
Together, we embrace our challenge: embodying new ways to cultivate communion in our world and be an inclusive body of Christ.
