Event Details

Jesus called his disciples to lead like one who serves, saying of himself, “I am among you as one who serves.” Yet Jesus taught as one having authority and gave authority to his disciples to do works in his name and to “bear fruit, fruit that will last.”

How best will the ordained woman—indeed all those called to ordained ministry—balance and embody the paradox of being a servant-leader while bearing authentic fruit? Please join us for a theologically inspired discussion and fashion event in which we will explore this vital topic, its invitation and challenges, and as women, discern how to express our individual clerical style.

(based on Luke 22: 26-27, 10:19; Matthew 7:29; Mark 1:27, 3:14; John 15:16)

 

Join us as we discuss:
•  Women’s issues of balancing authority and servanthood at the altar, in church, in public
•  Discovering and expressing one’s individual clerical style
•  Best resources for women’s clergy-wear: from collars to blouses, dresses, albs, and chasubles

 

Leading off our discussion will be our distinguished guest, the Right Reverend Chilton R. Knudsen, Assistant Bishop, Diocese of New York.

 

Our panelists representing the neighboring dioceses and The General Theological Seminary:
•  Diocese of Long Island: The Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, Canon for Missional Vitality
•  Diocese of New Jersey: The Rev. Ophelia Laughlin, Rector of St. George’s by the River, Rumson, NJ
•  Diocese of Newark: The Rev. Lauren Ackland, Rector of Grace Church, Madison, NJ
•  Diocese of New York: The Rev. Deacon Denise LaVetty, Interim Director of Deacon Formation Program
•  The General Theological Seminary: The Rev. Dr. Amy Lamborn, Professor of Pastoral Theology

 

The Rev. Danielle Thompson, Chaplain, GTS, will be our moderator, and the Rev. Canon Jeanne Person, Canon for Pastoral Care, Diocese of New York, will also participate in the event.
