Karen Angela Ellis to Speak on Women’s Identity in Christ
All women of the Covenant College community are invited to a conversation about identity in Christ on Covenant’s campus on Saturday, April 6, 2013, featuring speaker Karen Angela Ellis.
In her twenty-year career, Karen Angela Ellis has spoken for classrooms, conferences, on radio, television, film and onstage, exploring the zones where identity, human rights and theology intersect. She holds a master of fine arts from the Yale School of Drama, and travels and teaches alongside her husband, theological anthropologist Dr. Carl F. Ellis, Jr.
“We want to encourage young women at Covenant to think about their identity in Christ as their primary identity, and one that shapes all their relationships,” says Christiana Fitzpatrick, special programs and mentoring coordinator.
The morning will start in Brock Hall 118, 120, 122 at 9:30 a.m. with coffee and a continental breakfast, followed by a 10:00 a.m. general session and Q&A with Karen Angela Ellis, and small group discussions 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
“We hope it will be a time when women can provide help and encouragement to one another in Christ,” says Fitzpatrick.
