2018 Bishop's Lecture Series

2018 Bishop's Lecture Series

The Diocese was pleased to welcome the Rev. Lauren Winner as our speaker for the 2018 Bishop's Lecture Series. Her reflections were based off her book, Wearing God.  We were invited to look at new and different metaphors for God and reveal how they can deepen our spiritual lives.
Her first reflection explored the notion of God as clothing, and how we are "clothed with Christ"  and how "God fits us like a garment."

She then analyzed how clothing functions culturally to shape our ideals and identify our community, and she ruminated on how this new metaphor can function to create new possibilities for our lives.
For each Biblical metaphor—God as the gravedigger, or as a burning bush, or as laughter - allowed time for reflection and understanding of our own images of God and how they help shape our relationship with God.
A special thanks to St. Paul’s Cathedral, Oklahoma City for their hospitality!
