If you are hungry to explore new interpretations of familiar scriptural texts – interpretations that draw on women’s wisdom and a way of life that promotes equal dignity and value for women and men alike, don’t miss biblical scholar, author, and Grand Rapids Dominican Sister Barbara Reid’s visit to Dominican Center at Marywood.
In the book of Proverbs, woman wisdom invites all to eat at her banquet, that is, to learn her wise ways and live well. Through the exploration of feminist approaches to select passages of Scripture, we will have a taste of transformative ways for living well.
Attention will be given not only to gender perspectives, but also to race, class and culture as determinative factors in how one understands the biblical text. This program includes lecture and small and large group discussion.
