Birthing Hope: Women in the Christmas Story

Presenter: Sylvia Keesmaat

Wednesday, December 7, 2022 @ 7pm via Zoom


Please join MILC for a advent season workshop.  As Sylvia Keesmaat notes of the women in the Christmas story… some are named, some are hidden. Some are unexpectedly front and centre, others are obscure. This workshop will explore the women of the Christmas story, those seeking to birth hope in a world where the powerful seem to control the lives of women. 


Dr. Sylvia Keesmaat is a biblical scholar, activist and farmer.  She obtained her doctorate from Oxford University, studying with NT Wright, and has most recently taught as an Adjunct Professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity College, Toronto School of Theology, as well as for the Creation Care Studies program in Belize. 

Sylvia founded Bible Remixed in 2021 to help nurture a community of Jesus followers who are deeply rooted in the biblical story, and who are becoming a community of welcome, healing and nurture for those people and creatures who suffer most from the violence of our world. 

More information is available about her work at Bible Remixed.
