Winter WomanSpirit 2016:
February 5th - 7th
Women & Religion is proud to present:
Recognizing Our Calling
with Kate Braestrup
Kate, a UU Minister and New York Times best-selling author, is a Chaplain with the State of Maine Warden Service providing ministry to law enforcement officers and those they serve. Kate was married to a police officer who was killed in an on-duty accident leaving her with four children between the ages of 3 to 9 to raise on her own. Her husband had planned to become a UU Minister so Kate was familiar with liberal religion. Searching for her own path Kate felt called to her own ministry. Hear her story and discover how to listen for your own sense of calling, your own path where you can live out your faith.
Author of three best-selling books -- Beginner's Grace: Bringing Prayer to Life, Marriage and Other Acts of Charity: A Memoir, and Here If You Need Me: A True Story -- Kate will give the keynote speech as well as an all-conference workshop.
WWS 2016 will be held at First Unitarian Church of Chicago, located in the Hyde Park neighborhood. We are currently working on negotiating reduced rates for local hotels -
The Women and Religion Committee, and all Committee sponsored events, are open and welcoming to all those who identify as female.
