Rev. Margaret “Peggy” Howland
“A Woman Minister’s Story of Helping Women before Roe v Wade”
The Rev. Peggy Howland was one of the first women ordained to ministry in the Presbyterian Church 60 years ago. Working with compassionate clergymen, both ministers and rabbis, she helped organize the Clergy Consultation Service for Problem Pregnancies in the Capital District of New York State. Her personal experiences of helping women fueled her campaigning with churches in New York to legalize abortion in 1970, three years before Roe v Wade.
Rev. Bryan Fulwider
“Man Up: A Conversation about Men’s Spirituality”
The issue of males and their spiritual or soul journey is a favorite topic of many teachers from the fields of faith and philosophy. In our macho, self-made-man, all-sufficiency culture, what might we learn from these teachers and thinkers? Is there a unique challenge facing men regarding the journey of spirit and soul? How do we do a better job helping next generations to live out of a larger and more holistic vision of being a man in the world? We’ll discuss these and other questions as we take a look at Father’s Day from a different perspective: the “male predicament.” This is a topic that everyone can benefit from, so women, please don’t stay home!
Jeanine E. Viau, Ph.D.
"Retrieval, Resistance, and Serial Testimony"
This presentation introduces retrieval as a mode of religious knowledge-making and resistance among subordinated social groups and cultures. For example, forms of experiential narrative retrieval are key strategies in the work of feminist scholars of religion, Neo-Pagan practitioners, and anti-racism educators alike. Congregants will engage these methods directly in a facilitated exercise aimed at linking suppressed cultural memory, personal experience, and listening. Dr. Viau is a lecturer in Religion and Cultural Studies at the University of Central Florida.
