“CAKES for the QUEEN of HEAVEN: a Seminar Series in Feminist Thealogy”
A two-series religious educational curriculum in feminist thealogy for women and mature teenage girls created by Unitarian Universalist Women and Religion.
The class meets weekly from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. and will begin October 15th. Cost of the class is $0 - $10 (sliding scale) to cover cost of materials.
The Cakes for the Queen of Heaven course has dramatically changed Unitarian Universalist women and the denomination through its focus on the Goddess. This curriculum is a woman-honoring, adult religious education curriculum that examines pre-Judeo-Christian cultures that may have worshiped the female as divine, their stories and traditions. The concepts of equality and reverence for the female in a religious setting are eye-opening to many participants.
How to Save Christianity
Truth is like the fire at the heart of a many faced jewel.
Each angle shows a different aspect and a different color.
From: All Religions Are True by M. K. Ghandi
The statistics are damning. According to a recent CBS news report, for every person converted to Christianity in the U.S., four people leave the church. The Southern Baptist Convention expects to lose millions over the next 25 years. The last U.S. census reports that fewer people are attending church and declaring a religious affiliation. The Christian church in the modern western world is in steady decline.
Many of my fellow pastors complain that their congregations are aging with no young people coming to grace the pews. My own kids, now in their thirties, do not attend church. They think the church is antiquated and obsolete, a clay tablet in a computer age.
It is my opinion that my kids are right.
