Women’s history month and Brite chapel

February 28, 2011

Dear Friends,

This March marks the 31th anniversary of the National Women’s History Project, an educational nonprofit organization whose mission is to recognize and celebrate the diverse and historic accomplishments of women. As part of Brite’s observance of Women’s History Month, our worship services will celebrate and explore the many ways that God has called and continues to call women to Christian ministry, acknowledge women’s many historic accomplishments as well as the ways in which the Church continues to wrestle with issues of gender, and continue the struggle for justice and recognition for women today.

Tomorrow morning at 11:00 a.m. in Robert Carr Chapel, the Rev. Dr. Jo Hudson (Senior Pastor of Cathedral of Hope [UCC] in Dallas, Texas) will lead us in our worship of God through sermon and sacrament as she preaches her sermon “And the Word Became Flesh” (John 4:1-19) and presides at the Lord’s Table in the sharing of Holy Communion.

Our celebration tomorrow promises to be rich in blessing and will call us to the challenging and rewarding task of embodying the radical inclusivity of God’s love. Please make plans to attend and come celebrate with us. All are invited.

Soli Deo Gloria,

Rev. Michael N. Riggs
Director of Chapel
