When pondering the nature or essence of being, we consider topics such as whether or not men and women are fundamentally different. However, in society and the church, this conversation has historically excluded women of color—particularly black women—who were often considered subhuman. Through a combination of storytelling and practical tools, participants will learn more about what it is like to be made in the image of God as a black woman in a society and Christian context that refuses to acknowledge that the imago Dei resides in her.

The workshop reflects on and discusses the complex role of Bible translation in the dissemination of the good news of our salvation and liberation, and in championing gender equality. We will examine gender equality as a human dignity issue in our cultures, home, families, and churches!  Read more
This workshop examines how patriarchal views of gender relationships are sometimes anchored in homoian or semi-Arian views of the Trinity. This talk explains this idea and then critiques it, arguing that homoian views should not be used to bankroll beliefs about gender.  Read more

This session considers the portrayals of gender in which communicate and cultivate gender-based limitations in the modern Christian social imagination. It is a portion from a larger project on identity in the world of sound bites. This session invites you to consider how media representations continue a long history of depictions that communicate a particular role for women in society and speaks for the church in contrast to the biblical witness.

Patriarchy undermines the dignity God bestowed at creation. The first part of this workshop focuses on biblical reflections on human dignity and God’s image, and the second part concentrates on “redeeming God’s purpose for the creation of men and women.” With reference to creation narratives in Genesis and examples drawn from different cultures in Africa and other parts of the world, Chemorion demonstrates how cultural worldviews contribute to a diminished view of women, and what needs to be done to restore human dignity.

This session explores the spiritual, emotional, and physical healing women survivors of domestic abuse can experience when they give voice to their stories of overcoming through faith. The Healing Voices book will be presented as a backdrop of the liberating power experienced by women survivors/victims of abuse when they give voice to their experiences. They then become legitimate agents of change to move themselves from a position of brokenness into ministry to other women through the sharing their stories. Read more

The exclusion of women from church leadership has often been justified by a misinterpretation of the New Testament household codes. Paul actually opposed the cultural relegation of women to a secondary status. In fact, the household codes’ treatment of women conveys the love and grace of the gospel, in contrast to the patriarchal hierarchy that dominated the first-century Greco-Roman world. Read more
The movie When Harry Met Sally has a famous dinner conversation where Harry states, “men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way.” He was neither the first nor the last to express a sentiment that has consistently brought fear and suspicion into cross-sex relationships. While we should be cautious in our society of affairs, divorce, and casual sex, the time has come to look beyond our societal issues and ask whether that fear and suspicion among brothers and sisters is all we can hope for in the family of Christ. We need diverse perspectives in all aspects of society—even in our interpersonal relationships. This seminar will explore this question biblically and theologically, and move forward with practical steps to form friend and colleague relationships with the opposite sex. Remember, Jesus had several close friends who were women. Read more
