A Reflection from Kennedy

A Reflection from an Agnes Scott Intern

By Kennedy Thedford

I am a Junior at Agnes Scott College, studying Religion & Social Justice and Spanish. At Agnes we aim toward social justice, but since we are a small college we do not have the resources to focus on minority views in religion like feminism, womanism, and queer theology. At WATER, I was exposed to new theologies for the first time. I loved working with Mary and Diann to learn about women in Church history and to experience the diversity of rituals. I loved working with the other interns Emily, Kali, and Claire and learning how they experienced religion in different ways. I learned from WATER that religion is not just studying and prayer, but also action.
