An Evening Celebrating Black Women’s Spirituality Through Artistic and Sermonic Expressions
Join assistant professor of homiletics Lisa L. Thompson and friends for an evening celebrating black women’s spirituality through artistic and sermonic expressions. This happy hour gathering will feature readings from Dr. Thompson’s new book Ingenuity and live performances by guest artists highlighting the fluidity between everyday life and religion in the lives of black women.
Early release copies of Ingenuity will be available and signed by the author. General release copies will be available on November 6th and are available for pre-order now.
Ingenuity introduces a theology and practice of preaching that emerges from the faith and wisdom of black women— equipping readers to negotiate tradition, life experiences, and theological conviction in the creative work that makes way for sacred speech. This book offers deep insights for anyone seeking to enlarge their understanding, their language, and their sense of lived experiences, and offers practical help for preaching.
