Looking at Holy Women through the Lens of Diversity
Who are the Holy Women who have walked before us, our ancestors, foremothers and sisters in the Spirit?
Miriam, honored by Jews and Christians as a prophetess…
Mary, the subject of an entire chapter in the Koran and bowed to every day by Muslims…
The Samaritan Woman, an outsider not even named in Christian scripture but raised to sainthood by Orthodox Christians…
And did you know that Teresa of Avila, the great Christian mystic, was born into a Jewish family?
or that there is a modern Sikh mystic who painted his visions of Mary?
Join us to look at our foremothers through the lens of diversity. Learn about how the One God has been loved by our Holy Women with deep devotion that continues to invite the world today through the Abrahamic religions.
