God and Gender Based Violence: A Womanist Theological Response

November 17 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00am on Sunday, repeating until November 17, 2019

While black theology attends to race and feminist theology attends to gender, womanist theology is distinctive for its treatment of both race and gender oppression as theological problems and for its reliance on African American women’s religious experiences as a source of theological empowerment. This small group will explore how black women’s traditions of protest, struggle, and determination for freedom inform the development of theological reflection. In a brief study of womanist theology, discussions will aim to show how womanist concerns for social justice are critical for a deeper understanding of God and transformative action for God’s people.
