Walking Through the Valley: Womanist Explorations in the Spirit of Katie Geneva Cannon. Thursdays, Jan. 26, Feb. 2 and 9, 7:00 p.m., via Zoom. The Rev. Rebecca Kirkpatrick will lead a three-week class that explores the legacy of the Rev. Katie Cannon, the first African American woman ordained in the PC(USA) and creator of the discipline of Womanist Theology. In 2022, BMPC named our new adult education classroom after Dr. Cannon, and this class will delve into generations of scholarship she has inspired. Using a newly-published collection of essays by leading black female scholars, we will broaden our understanding of the Christian experience and deepen our appreciation for Dr. Cannon’s legacy.
