2019 Bishop's Lecture Series

2019 Bishop's Lecture Series
September 13

 


The Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma invites you to the 6th Annual Bishop’s Lecture Series.  The Series vision and implementation started with Sabrina Evans’ arrival to the Diocese in her role as the Director of Christian Formation.  Sabrina saw a need for providing opportunities for educating the wider community on the work Christians are doing in the world.  Past speakers include Diana Butler Bass, Rachel Held Evans and Lauren Winner.

This year the Series features the Rev. Becca Stevens.  Becca is an author, speaker, social justice entrepreneur, and priest. She is the founder and president of Thistle Farms, a movement dedicated to supporting women survivors of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction. Becca has been named a White House "Champion of Change," a 2016 CNN Hero, and has been featured in the New York Times, on ABC World News and NPR. Her newest book, Love Heals, was published by Harper Collins in September of 2017. 

Becca will be accompanied by graduates of the Thistle Farm program who will share their stories and experiences.  There will also be products made by the Thistle Farms women for sale at each workshop lecture.  The event will be held at St. Paul’s Cathedral in downtown OKC on September 13th & 14th.  Tickets are $20 for the entire event.

We look forward to learning from the incredible wisdom of Becca and the women of Thistle Farms and hope you can join us!
