ENCOUNTERING THE WOMEN AROUND JESUS

ENCOUNTERING THE WOMEN AROUND JESUS
October 01

A Day of Reflection with Dr. Art Zannoni

Saturday, October 1, 9:00am-12:00pm, in the Hall of Martyrs Room 268

Considering that the Gospels were composed during a time of patriarchy when men were considered the dominant gender of society, it is remarkable that women are portrayed in a positive light in the Gospels. The inclusion of their stories provides a counter-cultural view of the sole approval of male dominance. The Gospels' stories about women also reveal that Jesus, his lifestyle, and teachings, were inclusive and non-gender specific. Women, like men, are changed by encountering Jesus. This presentation will explore some of the women found in each of the Gospels. Emphasis will be placed on how unique these women's relationships with Jesus were. Examples include women in Jesus' genealogy and Jesus' relationship to his mother, Mary, Mary Magdalene, Mary and Martha of Bethany, a Syrophoenician woman, and many more. Each story of women followers of Jesus provides a model for our practice of faith today. This is event is free, though free will offerings are appreciated.

This event is offered free of charge, though a free will offering would be appreciated. You can make a donation on this form with a credit card, otherwise there will be a basket available at the back of the Sanctuary.
