Women in the Lectionary with Professor Ashley Wilcox
Focusing on passages about women in the Bible and feminine imagery of God, Ashley Wilcox, a professor of preaching at Candler School of Theology, will offer an overview of “The Women’s Lectionary” as she reimagines the liturgical calendar of preaching for one year.
Women are daughters, wives, and mothers. They are also strong leaders, evil queens, and wicked stepmothers. They are disciples, troublemakers, and prophetesses. Ashley Wilcox explores how the feminine descriptions of God in the Bible are similarly varied―how does it change our understanding if God is feminine wisdom, has wings, or is an angry mother bear?
