Historical Note

Re-Imagining: A Global Theological Conference By Women: For Men and Women, was organized by Mary Ann Lundy (Director of the Presbyterian Church USA's Women's Unit), Sally Hill, and other mainline protestant leaders in the United States, to be part of the World Council of Churches' Ecumenical Decade: Churches in Solidarity with Women 1988–1998. The 2,200 attendees, met at the Minneapolis Convention Center on November 4 to 7, 1993, participating in presentations and rituals re-imagining male-centric images and language of traditional Christianity.

Dr. Sherry Jordon was awarded her Ph.D in Theology from Yale in 1995 and is currently Associate Professor of Theology at the University of St. Thomas. She specializes in historical theology, particularly the Reformation period, and Women's Studies. Jordon served on the Coordinating Council of the Re-Imagining Community from 1998-2003, spoke at the 2003 Re-Imagining Gathering, and wrote an essay on feminist theology for Bless Sophia: Worship, Liturgy, and Ritual of the Re-Imagining Community. As part of her current research on the history and theology of Re-Imagining, she completed sixty-five oral interviews with members of the Re-Imagining Community, leading feminist and womanist theologians who presented at the conferences, people who were on the national staff of the women's units in the Presbyterian (USA) and United Methodist churches, and authors who have written books related to Christian feminism and/or Re-Imagining.
