Sherry Cothran: Prophets, Harlots, Witches and Warriors — Untamed Women of the Old Testament 

When: Fri., March 21, 6 p.m. 2014
“I’m really intrigued by the stories of women in the Old Testament, particularly ones who are kind of wild.” Not exactly the kind of thing I remember hearing in the anti-feminist woman-created-from-man’s-rib sermons of my church-going youth. But Sherry Cothran is a newer, much more interesting kind of pastor who appeals to people regardless of which side of the God divide they find themselves. “I wanted to look into their stories,” Cothran goes on to say, “and all the ways they had been branded: prostitute, witch, disposable daughter. I wanted to unhide some of these women.” Join her for a storytelling event at Scarritt-Bennett Center’s interfaith campus today, where Cothran, who’s gained accolades as lead singer of The Evinrudes, will intersperse songs about Old Testament women with lectures about the scripture that inspired them.
