“A Faith That Will Not Shrink”: Learning From The Yellow Fever
Service of Worship
The Rev. Floyd Thompkins, pastor of
What does theology say about embodiment? What do bodies say about theology? Wendy Farley writes, it’s time to pay attention to what excluded bodies have to say to theology. Jon Berquist says, the way we understand bodies runs parallel to the way we understand society and God, and so it was in ancient times, in the many competing views of bodies and embodiment present in the Hebrew Bible. The San Francisco Theological Seminary invites you to join us for lunch, a panel discussion with Farley and Berquist and the faculty of the Graduate School of Theology, and a “Incarnational Spirituality Lab,” in which participates will together reimagine how theology can be embodied in liturgy, practice, and social justice. We will conclude with an Embodiment of Prayer led by Marcia McFee.
