sophie’s table

November 28 through December 1 is an annual event of Woman Preach, Inc. which equips preachers to preach the gospel from a womanist/feminist perspective particularly concerning equity, inclusion, and justice. Sophie's Table is forum where male preachers learn together about issues confronting the women they pastor. The title, “Sophie’s Table,” is a nod toward strong, female wisdom traditions, to which men have been called as far back as Proverbs. The event will be held at New Life Presbyterian Church in College Park, GA, where Trustee Hodari Williams is the Senior Pastor.

What People Are Saying

Being a part of this program has changed my way of thinking, increased my faith and opened my ear more to what God wants from me as a worshipper. I am truly thankful and excited for the opportunity to grasp worship on a deeper level.
