WATERtalks: Feminist Conversations in Religion Series
“Feminist Efforts to Overcome the Genocidal Mentality of Nuclear Weapons”
An hour-long teleconference with The Rev. Dr. Renate Rose
Wednesday, November 2, 2016
1 PM – 2 PM ET
Join us for our November 2, 2016 WATERtalk, at 1 pm – 2 pm ET, either by phone or in the WATER office.
Renate Rose is a peace advocate and ordained pastor of the United Church of Christ. She studied economics and political science in Germany (Ph.D.) and worked for 12 years in international organizations. She holds graduate degrees from Harvard Divinity School (M.Div.) and San Francisco Theological Seminary (D.Min.) and served as pastor and Association Minister in Honolulu while being active in the peace movement. For seven years she taught New Testament, Worship and Feminist Theology in the Philippines (Silliman Divinity School and Union Theological Seminary). After her retirement she translated a book about Auschwitz from German into English.
A long-time supporter of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (IPPNW) and other peace organizations, Renate feels strongly that the nuclear arms race is foremost a feminist issue, but has been largely neglected by feminists. She believes most people remain uninformed of the threat of nuclear war and hopes to point listeners toward important resources and analyses.
Resources will be provided for those who register for this talk.
