Q. What is "Cakes for the Queen of Heaven". . . a cooking class?
"Cakes for the Queen of Heaven" is a woman honoring adult RE curriculum by Rev. Shirley Ranck, consisting of two interactive workshop series. Cakes examines pre-Judeo Christian cultures that worshiped the female as divine. The concepts of equality and reverence for the female in a religious setting are eye-opening to many participants.
More than Goddess 101, this workshop series examines important elements of today's women's lives; personal, interpersonal and societal. It examines how our culture has been influenced by Judeo Christian values. The primary question raised is: How would your life have been different if, when growing up, the divine had been imaged as female?
We have offered both as full length presentations this past year. Due to the response, and to the fact that so many who joined late, or missed one or both of them have asked "What did I miss?" we have decided to offer both again as brief 2 session compilations of the topics. The first, "In Ancient Times" was held in July.
The second, "On the Threshold" is a 6-week series that reclaims the stories of powerful women in ancient Judaism and early Christianity. The shortened version will be offered in August on two consecutive Thursdays, August 16th and 23rd
They will both take place at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Meriden.
