Wednesday March 2nd 2011 at South Wales Baptist College (Richmond Road, Cardiff):

1.30pm: Daughters of God: Girls Growing in Faith

In this lecture, Revd Dr Anne Phillips(Co-Principal, Northern Baptist Learning Community) will explore the ways early adolescent girls understand themselves, God and their faith within the contexts of home, church and school, setting their self-understanding within a framework of research into a spectrum of developmental theories.

3.30pm: The Power of Un-naming: Girls and the Bible

Why are so few biblical girls named? Is motherhood a girl’s only God-given purpose and destiny? How does it feel that ‘there aren’t many parts for girls’ in biblical drama? Where do girls find their biblical role models?

This second lecture breaks new ground in taking a scholarly look at pre-adolescent girls in scripture, and through studying their place in God’s story argues for a ‘theology of girlhood’ that defines their distinctive role in salvation history.
