Looking at Holy Women through the Lens of Diversity

Who are the Holy Women who have walked before us, our ancestors, foremothers and sisters in the Spirit? Miriam, honored by Jews and Christians as a prophetess…Mary, the subject of an entire chapter in the Koran and bowed to every day by Muslims…The Samaritan Woman, an outsider not even named in Christian scripture but raised to sainthood by Orthodox Christians…And did you know that Teresa of Avila, the great Christian mystic, was born into a Jewish family?…or that there is a modern Sikh mystic who painted his visions of Mary? Join us to look at our foremothers through the lens of diversity. Our One God has been loved by Holy Women of the three Abrahamic religions with deep devotion. Their lives continue to invite us to look at them through the lens of diversity.
