I first learned the world "Womanist" as a seminary student. It is the term used to describe African American Feminist Theology. The term was first used By Dr. Delores S. Williams. The term has its roots in Alice Walker's writings in which she uses the term "Womanism" which is based in the everyday experiences of African American Women. Womanist Theology seeks to center the faith and theological experiences of African American and Black Women.
Continuing our Theological Perspectives series The Garden Church is thrilled to welcome Rev. Neema Cyrus-Franklin to the pulpit. Rev. Neema Cyrus-Franklin is currently the Communications Director and has served the Presbytery of the Pacific for the past 9 years. Her duties and responsibilities are technology and communications strategies to support the mission and communities of the Presbytery. Rev. Cyrus-Franklin served as the Stated Clerk for Pacific Presbytery from 2018 to 2022. She attended Johnson C. Smith Theological Seminary of the Interdenominational Theological Center, earning a dual master’s degree in Divinity and Christian education with a concentration in Hebrew Bible.
Rev. Neema is a friend and colleague of mine and we are blessed to have her bring us God's word this coming Sunday.
