May 1: Disability and its Implications for Personhood
For thousands of years, Western philosophy has defined the person as an entity which uses language to communicate. This has called into question the personhood of certain populations, such as the nonverbal Autistic community.

May 9: Women in the Bible, the Facts and the Misunderstandings
Oftentimes, the role of women in the early Church is muddled in mystery. Certain verses in Paul argue for the inclusion of women in liturgical roles, while verses elsewhere demand women be subservient to men. By examining these verses, we can get a clearer view of how women’s roles changed in the early Church, as well as how to forge a way forward which allows all people to share their gifts regardless of gender identity.
