Women and Theology Activist Summit
On April 27th, Auburn Seminary hosted a day-long summit for women faith leaders and activists to begin to lay the foundation for building a spiritually grounded, multifaith language for social change and transformation rooted in women’s experience. A video montage, produced by program participant and member of the Auburn Media team, the Rev. Kellie Anderson-Picallo, served as a critical resource for our gathering.

Caring For Our Own Vineyards

What does it mean to live a truly wholeness based, social justice infused life of faith?
On Monday, March 28, 2011 Auburn Seminary hosted a gathering that took the conversation to the next level as a select group of emerging and established scholars, activists, preachers, and teachers convened for the first ever summit of the Ain’t I A Leader initiative.
Caring for Our Own Vineyards: Self-Care as a Mandate for Prophetic Ministry relied on a combination of ritual, interactive dialogues between keynote speakers -- the Rev. Dr. JoAnne Terrell and the Rev. Dr. Monica A. Coleman – and music-based community-building moments – to inspire the women gathered to offer embodied reflections on and concrete strategies for what an activist life dedicated to the thriving of women of color might look like.
Highlights of the event included a call to action/march and a provocative closing sermon preached by the Rev. Dr. Leslie Callahan.
