Come read with us! No need to prepare beforehand: we’ll provide a copy of the reading (a short piece on science and religion) and offer pizza and wine as well. All you need is to come ready to read something great, eat something delicious, and discuss some important ideas.
Nan Hutton, ThD candidate at HDS, will present, "Religion is something you 'do'": Antoinette Brown Blackwell (1825-1921) accomplished a number of "firsts" that have significance within women's history as evidence of a woman succeeding in what were then male-dominated arenas. In Chapter 1, we'll read about her religious formation in the context of larger national narratives: the "woman question," "millennialism," "revivalism" and "benevolence and social reform" -- all of which influenced her commitments to "do" religion.
