Alice C Linsley Black Background

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.

Our faith rests on “two testaments, three creeds, four general councils, five centuries, and the series of Fathers in that period — the centuries that is, before Constantine, and two after, determine the boundary of our faith.”

LANCELOT ANDREWES

“I didn’t go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.”

C. S. LEWIS

“The Church must be forever building, for it is forever decaying within and attacked from without.”

They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
