Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Not many congregations have two out lesbians as a clergy team. They do that kind of thing in North Carolina.

Rev. Dr. Angela Yarber is a trailblazer. She is author of six books that address the intersections among religion, the arts, gender and sexuality. She holds a Ph.D. in Art and Religion from the Graduate Theological Union. Dr. Yarber has been a clergywoman and professional artist since 1999. Her books include:

"Microagressions in Ministry: Confronting the Hidden Violence of Everyday Church,"

"The Gendered Pulpit: Sex, Body, and Desire in Preaching and Worship,"

"Tearing Open the Heavens,"

"Dance in Scripture, How Biblical Dancers Can Revolutionize Scripture," and

"Embodying the Feminine in the Dances of the Worlds Religions."

We spend most of our time talking about "The Holy Women Icons Project." According to her website, (, this project

"...seeks to empower women by telling the stories of revolutionary holy women through art, writing, and special events.

Holy Women Icons art gives traditional iconography a folk-feminist twist. Books focus on the intersections among gender/sexuality, religion/spirituality, and the arts."

You will enjoy this conversation with this creative and thoughtful justice seeker.
