Online Book Talk: ‘In the Spirit of Jesus’ with Dr. Miriam Therese Winter | Hartford Seminary

Online Book Talk: ‘In the Spirit of Jesus’ with Dr. Miriam Therese Winter

Join us to hear pioneering feminist theologian Dr. Miriam Therese Winter as she talks about “a new way to understand Jesus.” This event will be live-captioned.

In the Spirit of Jesus was written while Dr. Winter was in quarantine. It includes prompts for personal reflection, group discussion, and prayers, as well as song lyrics and poetry. The book directly addresses the prevailing issues of 2020, including racial injustice, climate change, and the coronavirus pandemic, among others.

“We are living in unprecedented times,” she writes. “We need to discover unprecedented ways to live faith fully in a world that is radically different from whatever has been before. How can we change water into wine, metaphorically? When will we finally hear the cries of those who hunger for food … for justice … for a place at the table where crucial decisions are made?”

Dr. Winter directs both the Women’s Leadership Institute and the Master of Arts in Transformative Leadership and Spirituality at Hartford Seminary.

This talk is free, but donations to Hartford Seminary are gratefully accepted. Information about accessing the Zoom session will be provided when you register.
