Brooding Over the Waters; A Quiet Day with the Divine Feminine and the Hebrew Bible

Sat, March 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

led by Lizzie Berne De Gear, Ph.D.
Please plan to join us at Ascension for a day of scriptural exploration and prayerful contemplation as we unlock access to the powerful presence of the divine feminine in the creation stories of our Bible, focusing on texts that are often overlooked or lost in translation. What is waiting to be unlocked in you as you journey towards Easter? Let’s explore together. Suggested donation for the day is $10. Please bring a lunch; we will serve coffee and tea. To register, please contact the parish office ([email protected] or 212-254-8620). For more information, please speak with the clergy. All are most welcome!
Dr. De Gear is a teacher, retreat leader, and chaplain. She received her PhD at Union Theological Seminary, with a dual focus on the Hebrew Bible and psychoanalytic theory, and has a master’s in religion and religious education from Fordham University where she also teaches courses in psychology and religion. Lizzie has been teaching Bible Studies down the street at the Church of St. Francis Xavier since 2002.
