In His Image: Gender, the Bible, & the Church
Saturday September 21st at 2:00PM At St Philip’s Anglican Church 306 Progress St NE, Blacksburg, VA 24060
Alice C. Linsley is a writer, speaker, and independent researcher. She was a priest in the Episcopal Church for 18 years before leaving this vocation by way of her convictions stemming from an intense study of Scripture, Church History, and her research in Ancient Anthropology. She believes that women were never supposed to be priests. For over 35 years she has been pioneering a new field of Anthropology that applies an empirical method to the Bible.
She will speak about the role of women in the Church and society and then take questions, so come prepared! The presentation starts at 2:00 PM and goes until 4:00 PM with a break for coffee and light refreshments.
St. Dunstan’s Academy of Christian Studies, our weekly Bible study series, continues this Wednesday, September 11. This year, we’ll be studying the book of Acts supplemented with history of the early church. This study is free (and doesn’t have homework!) and is a great way to learn more about scripture. The evening begins with Evening Prayer at 6:45, with the study beginning at 7:15 in the church hall. for more information click here.
