Towards a Theology of Returning!
Tuesday 10 March in the Thurber Room – Meal at 19h; Presentation 19h45-21h15

Rev. Odette Lockwood-Stewart

Theologies of liberation claim and embody Gospel righteousness, that is, right relationship, of God with oppressed, dispossessed and marginalized peoples. Biblical and contemporary prophets and Christian discipleship call non-marginalized Christians to remember, relinquish, and return. In this conversation we will reflect on Scripture and on varied life experience. We will explore the public acts of worship, service and community that make for Gospel change in our lives and the world.

Reverend Odette Lockwood-Stewart is delighted to return to ACP. United Methodist pastor and seminary professor, Rev. Odette led congregations and campus ministries in California for forty-one years. She planted and re-vitalized ministries in health sciences, higher education, and community organizing, and published devotions, curricula, sermons, and poetry. Christian ministry is her passion. Social History, film, and literature are among her personal interests. In June she will begin her service as Interim Senior Pastor at ACP.

Thurber Conversations are an adult community gathering and growth time that is open to all.
