Katie G. Cannon: Calling for the Order of the Day
Rev. Dr. Katie G. Cannon was a leading voice in womanist theology; a theology which centers the perspective of African American women in the Christian world.
In her sermon, “Calling for the Order of the Day,” Cannon uses a womanist perspective to challenge the way Presbyterians view their history. In this sermon she questions how we frame figures in history: how the subject is viewed, who their ancestors are, and what they can teach us.
