Cakes for the Queen of Heaven, starts Feb 28

5 Wednesdays, 7:00-9:00 pm Feb 28, Mar 7, 14, 21 & 28

Cakes for the Queen of Heaven is a woman-honoring adult RE course by Rev. Shirley Ranck. It examines pre-Judeo Christian cultures that appear to have worshiped the female as divine. Journey into the past to reclaim the stories of powerful women found in ancient Judaism and in early Christianity.

The concepts of equality and reverence for the female in a religious setting are illuminating to many participants. We will also look at the global silencing and brutalization of women that accompanied the rise of patriarchal religion and society, and celebrate new world views and theology that are emerging in our time.

Please register by Feb 20, to ensure enough materials are copied. Childcare requests also by Feb 20.
