2018 Conference Recap and Reflections

Stained Glass Window Abstract
In the age of #Metoo and #Timesup, heart connections between women have become ever more vital. We need each other; we are created to crave connection. “In Such a Time as This,” let’s continue our Christian feminist collaboration to create the change we want to see in our world.
Hands and Hearts
While each plenary and workshop session at the 2018 Gathering sounded the theme of “Standing Up and Speaking Up” in such a time as this, I will remember best the personal relationships that seemed foundational to the speakers’ worldviews.
World's Fair Abstract
It is evident that Christian Feminism Today allows individuals to ‘come to the table and sit for a while,” all the while gleaning new information, thoughts, and revelations. This conference rewards the attendees through fellowship with others and gaining knowledge of subjects which may not be ordinary but may be faced in extraordinary circumstances.
Power of the Moment
I left the Gathering with a fuller understanding of what speaking truth to power looks like. I came to understand that truth is multifaceted and entails a synthesis of propositional and narrative knowledge. The latter needs intentional cultivation, as it has been stigmatized and devalued due to its association with femininity, whereas propositional knowledge has been valued due to its association with masculinity.

This gathering offered a wonderful opportunity for building bridges and lasting relationships in our ongoing collective desire to see and experience more of the Divine Feminine influence in our lives and in our efforts to pursue social justice for marginalized groups. I look forward to future gatherings which promote this delicate balance.
On July 26, 2018, we were so excited because we finally got to start our conference in St. Louis. Feminists were flying high (you know, literally, in planes). We told people, “if you aren’t able to come in person this year, have no fear. Granted you’ll miss out on big egalitarian hugs, BUT we have a social media team ready to make you feel like you’re with us in spirit!”
