Duke Divinity School's Ministerial Division and the Office of Black Church Studies will co-sponsor a public panel discussion, "Sacraments in Stilettos, Preaching in Pumps," on women in ministry with five women ministers reflecting on their life in ministry and what they wish they had known when they graduated from seminary.
The panel will include: Katie Ricks, associate pastor of the Church of Reconciliation in Chapel Hill, N.C.; Sarah Jobe, a chaplain at Raleigh Correctional Center for Women and author of Creating with God: The Holy Confusing Gift of Pregnancy; Ashley-Anne Masters, pastor, chaplain, and co-author of Bless Her Heart: Life as a Young Clergy Woman; Lisa Yebuah, pastor at Edenton Street United Methodist Church in Raleigh, N.C.; and Ginger Brasher-Cunningham, senior pastor at Pilgrim United Methodist Church of Christ in Durham, N.C.
The conversation will be facilitated by Lauren Winner, assistant professor of Christian spirituality at the Divinity School. The event grew out of discussions that took place in Winner’s Women in Ministry class (Parish 815).
The Divinity School Women’s Center will provide refreshments.
