My Soul Glorifies the Lord: Women in the Bible

Liz Adekunle

The wisdom and insight of women in the Bible have been largely overlooked. Liz invites us to listen anew to the voices and stories of women such as Mary, Eve, Hagar and Ruth, using storytelling from the Bible and art.

Saturday 25 April 2 - 4.30pm
Wren Suite £15 (bursaries are available)

We will explore what women and their identity in the Bible can teach us today about contemporary issues of leadership, relationships, love and power. By re-evaluating our thinking we will ask, are these women still relevant and what is there to rediscover and to teach us in the modern world?

The workshop will introduce and draw on the work of leading feminist theorists such as Naomi Wolf and theologians including Elizabeth Schussler Fiorenza and Phyllis Trible.

The Ven Liz Adekunle is the Archdeacon of Hackney and a member of the Archbishops’ Task Group for Evangelism, and was previously Chaplain and Acting Dan of St John’s College, Cambridge. She is an associate at Westminster Abbey, Chaplain to Her Majesty the Queen and is currently working on her part-time PhD in Feminist Theology at Cambridge University.
