Dark & Lovely: Is God In It? A Reflection on the 2018 Pittsburgh Theological Seminary Schaff Lectures on Race, Gender and the Imago Dei

"The Shunamite woman stands in the canon and reminds us of both the age-old struggle to suppress Black women and other women of color and the righteous resistance such women must put forth: dark am I, and lovely. Our blackness is not an apology. It is a declaration that we are made in God's image." -Rev. Tega Swann

When God Sends Us Those Foreigners

"It's a despicable human practice that the most despised group in a despised people group are the women of that people group. For some strange reason, dishonoring the women of a despised tribe is proof of how low that tribe is. No wonder enemy groups degrade the women of their opponents through rape. Yes, women always have it worse when it comes to any marginalized group!" -Rev. Tega Swann

"That a woman of color would speak to...people on matters of religion and doctrine was no small feat. That she would be as highly respected as she was is evidence that she was fulfilling the calling that compelled her" -Regina D. Pollard
