Our Response to Today’s World as Christian Women

Our Response…

The Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers and The Rev. Canon Carrie Headington will present on the topic of how we respond, as Christian women, to the changes and challenges of the world. We’ll gain insight into how faith inspires us to respond to injustice and need while sharing God’s love.

Spellers brings a unique perspective from her work with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and her own social justice work.

Headington as well will inspire us to look at our lives and what we can do to heal and reconcile diverse viewpoints.

Canon Spellers books will be available in the Church of the Transfiguration Gift Shop, and she will be available to sign them.

Registration is $60 for in-person and $20 for Zoom. Register below.

A block of rooms is reserved at Hyatt Place Dallas North (5229 Spring Valley Rd., Dallas) for $110/night with the code G-EDOK.


Workshop leader Dana Jean asks What are you willing to risk? Confronting Gender, Race and Prvilege. Let’s get uncomfortable in this practical workshop that asks hard questions to help us identify ways we may center the comfort of middle-class women at the expense of others.

Our second workshop is led by Dee Sanders who says It’s Ours to Fix, Being a Social Justice Warrior. We’ll look at ways we can we make lifestyle changes to create an environment that is more just and equitable.
