The theme for Convocation 2002 was
‘MOTHERHOOD OF GOD: SCRIPTURE, THEOLOGY, AND PRACTICE.’
Our presenter, Dr. Elizabeth Ursic, author of WOMEN, RITUAL, AND POWER, led us through six areas of consideration:
Expanding our Images of God – God as Mother in Scripture, God as Mother in Theology and Worship, Experiencing Mother God and the Meaning of the Labyrinth, Labyrinth Walk – Being Birthed by the Mother, Preparing the Soil for God as Mother in Prayer and Worship, and a Discussion: God as Mother – Ministry Considerations, Concerns.
