CFI Saskatoon Meetup: Confessions of a Christian Feminist:Women & the Church in the Post-Enlightenment
The next Saskatoon Freethinkers meetup is:
Confessions of a Christian Feminist:Women & the Church in the Post-Enlightenment
will happen on Sunday, June 19, 2011
Women’s roles in organized religion have always evoked lively debate. As a feminist scholar within Christianity, Sandra Beardsall will note the diverse reactions to “Enlightenment,” which positioned women in diverse and conflicting ways in church life and leadership, and suggest avenues for conversation for secularists and religionists in post-modernity.
Sandra is the first religious speaker we have invited to one of our meetings. Hopefully members will appreciate this opportunity to speak with someone of faith.
Here are links to a few things written by Sandra or quoting her:
