Hosanna! People’s Seminary (H!PS) is thrilled to announce its September 2011- May 2012 programming! Whether you’re interested in building communities and missions accessible to all, or participating in free, supportive, and challenging anti-racism training and community for white folks, or practicing womanist/feminist preaching on the body in a community of sisters, we have something for you this year! Check out our open programs and tentative meeting times below; meeting times may change depending on interest. All sessions will gather via video conference. Please be sure to register by August 31st. Programming is (as always) FREE but spaces are limited!
SisterTemples: Testimonies of the Body from Where We Stand
Fourth Tuesdays @ 8-9PM EST via video conference
A learning/preaching circle devoted to our stories of women’s bodies- incarnate, crucified, and resurrected. Sexuality, Colorism/Racism, Labor, Occupation, and Reproductive Justice are among possible topics. Transwomen, women of color, and women with disabilities are especially invited to participate. Whoever you are, you’re welcome!
Fully Broken, Fully Healed: Building Accessible Justice Movements and Communities
Third Thursdays @ 8-9PM EST via video conference
Members will meditate on liberating theologies for people living with disabilities, learn about the history and legal context of access in faith/justice communities, witness/share personal testimonies. What would awareness, accountability, and solidarity look like between people living with disabilities and allies? We’re determined to find out!
Poplar Tree Meetings: Examining the Strange Fruit of White Privilege (BETA)
A Support Group for White Folks
Third Mondays @ 8-9PM EST via video conference
A “BETA” version support group and training that’s rough around the edges- just like us! Join in on a community of mutual support for reflection, prayer, and study on white privilege. Study resources, share personal stories, hear from speakers, and become equipped with ministerial tools for uprooting white privilege!
