  • The Courage to Be
    02-24-2021 | 3:30PM - 4:30PM | Webinar

    Nicole-Tolliver.jpegMIN. NICOLE TOLLIVER - Courage is a virtue that is essential to our struggle for social justice and liberation. "Paul Tillich once said, courage is directly tied to being or a self-affirmation of one's being." One that Black culture and the Black Church have exemplified for generations. This is the kind of courage that we witness in the story of Hagar. Hagar's story is one of exploitation and persecution suffered by an Egyptian slave at her Hebrew mistress's hands, yet she exemplified courage in her being. A story that is familiar to many women, especially Black women. This type of courage can only come from a higher power. Join us and preacher, Nicole Tolliver, Minister at The Grove Nashville, to discuss the courage of Hagar and how we, too, can exhibit courage in our being.

  • Parable of a Brown Girl
    03-25-2021 | 3:15PM - 4:15PM | Webinar

    Khristi-Lauren-Adams.jpgREV. KHRISTI ADAMS - Imago Dei, a theological term rooted in Genesis 1:27, says human beings are created in the image and likeness of God. While this is a fascinating concept, humans have struggled to conceptualize what it truly means as it relates to themselves as individuals and other humans and living creatures. Young Black girls specifically, fail to receive the message that they, too are made in the image of God. Their lived experiences are often overlooked, unseen, and ignored rather than valued and heard. In this talk, Rev. Khristi Adams will magnify the struggles, dreams, wisdom, and dignity of these voices and demonstrate how the narratives we most often ignore can teach us the most important lessons in life.
