Sophia Goddess Worship Leader to Re-Imagine God Again At United Methodist Center In Atlanta
Miriam Therese Winter, faculty member at the "Sophia Center" in Oakland, California and author of the infamous "goddess" liturgies to Ashtar, Ochun, Diana, etc. will be one of two keynote speakers at Simpsonwood (United Methodist Retreat Center) in Atlanta on August 5, 2000. (The other speaker is David Rhoads)
The program is entitled "Parables of the Reign of God: Stories for the New Millenium". Ms. Winter is speaking as part of "NOBS" (Network of Biblical Storytellers").
If anyone would like to sign up or write and thank Simpsonwood for their openmindedness
and tolerance in bringing Ms. Winter to Atlanta once again...(remember she addressed 800
UM clergywomen in 1995), you may do so by accessing the appropriate information at:

Miriam Therese Winter proceeds to portray Eve as a wanton nymph who "ran with the wolves" and talked to serpents and snakes". She also danced a circle dance* among the trees, particularly the apple tree, and did rituals with her daughters that were "frightening" to Adam (pp. 35-37).
As one reviewer of Ms. Winter's treatise puts it:
(Dear Lord, forgive us.....)
